Wat Po Lanka

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Wat Po Lanka is a temple across the Siem Reap river from the main city center. It is not far from Wat Bo and if you are walking or hiring a Tuk-Tuk, it is well advised that you visit both of these sites at the same time.

If you come in the morning, you will see a lot of Cambodians praying at the Wats. Unlike Thailand, I have noticed the temples here are frequently visited by the locals for prayers. As you can see from the picture below, there are a lot of people praying.

The architecture here at Wat Po Lanka is also pretty.

There are a lot of nice buddhist / monk artwork around the temple as seen in the picture below. This is not the flashiest of all temples but definitely a worthwhile visit for me since I was able to see so many locals in prayer.
