Silver Pagoda (or the temple of the Emerald Buddha), formerly a wooden building, was rebuilt in 1962 in concrete and marble. The pagoda is floored with over 5000 silver tiles each weighing 1 kilo. It is famous for its 90 kg solid gold Buddha made in 1907 and an emerald Buddha said to be made of baccarat crystal.

Note:During the visit of Royal Palace - visitors should wear shirts or blouse covering shoulders and arms and long skirts or trousers covering legs (no miniskirt or short trousers)

Tuol Sleng Museum, known as the Museum of Genocidal Crimes was used by the Khmer Rouge as a detention and torture center in the late 1970. Today the building houses exhibits, paintings and photographs of many of the victims. Visitors can see the crude cells built in the classrooms and the torture devices used to extract confessions in Stalinesque purges of the regime.
