The palace in traditional Khmer style is probably the most famous sight in Phnom Penh. It is hard to get enough of the richly decorated buildings, with lots of religious symbolism. Most of the buildings of today's Royal Palace were rebuilt at the beginning of the 20th century on the site of King Norodom's palace.

Right next to the Royal Palace is the Silver Pagoda. It was built in 1962 by King Sihanouk. The Silver Pagoda owes its name to the 5,329 silver floor tiles, most of which have disappeared under carpets to preserve them.
