Independence Monument

Constructed in 1958 to celebrate Cambodia’s independence from French colonial rule (officially ended 1953), Independence Monument was designed by arguably Cambodia’s most celebrated and respected architect Van Molyvann.

The monument is centrally located at the cross roads between Norodom & Sihanouk boulevards and is often used for official purposes on Cambodian holidays and days of national celebration.

The monument is surrounded by fountains and features a ceremonial flame at the center.

The roundabout surrounding the monument can become quite chaotic with traffic at busy times of the day so be careful if you wish to cross the roads to get a good picture.
