More of a landmark and an interesting sight to note in the middle of town than an attraction to seek out, it's a symbol of Phnom Penh and of Cambodia's independence as a country.

Nice to look at but the traffic circle can be frightening! Must be careful if you're riding around it

I spent a lot of time here, there is a big park facing the monument with heavy traffic on both sides. Wonderful place for people watching and seeing some Cambodian city life. At night it lights up making for beautiful photo opportunities.

It's a big monument which is a great landmark to give to tuk tuk drivers. There are a lot of cafes around this monument.

Independence Monument was built in 1958, is designed to end French rule in Cambodia. You just need to stop for a while to take photo, no need to spend more times here.

Interesting enough but if your stay in Phnom Penh is short, I would prioritize the genocide memorial sights. Hard to miss this one as you drive around but no real need to spend time there.

The Independence Monument is located at the center of downtown Phnom Penh and is a block away from Luckie Supermarket and other restaurants and stores. It's located at the center of a huge round-about, so you won't be able to miss it.

Das Unabhängigkeitsdenkmal, das dem zentralen Turm von Angkor Wat nachempfunden ist, wurde 1958 zum Gedenken an die Unabhängigkeit des Landes von Frankreich im Jahr 1953 erbaut. Es dient auch als Denkmal für Kambodschas Kriegstoten. An nationalen Feiertagen werden hier Kränze abgelegt und eine Zeremonie abgehalten.
