WAT PHNOM OUDONG - CAMBODIA


Phnom Oudong (oudong means victorious) dates from the early 7th century and was the old capital of Cambodia (1618 - 1866) before the capital was moved to Phnom Penh. The main attraction in this area today is the Oudong Hill area (Phnom Oudong). It is now the official resting place of the most sacred of Buddha's bones possessed by Cambodia. Originally stored at the monument in front of the railway station in Phnom Penh and later Wat Phnom, the bone has had a new temple built top the mountain and is now the tallest one of three temples that exist there.
