Built in honor of Cambodian king Ang Duong (whose amazing official title was “Preah Raja Samdach Preah Hariraksha Rama Suriya Maha Isvara Adipati”), the stupa in Phnom Udong was built to house the king’s ashes by his son King Norodom in 1891.
Mak Proum is the final resting place of King Monivong. It’s decorated with garudas (mythical half-man, half-bird creatures), floral designs, and elephants, and has four faces on top.
