An Angkorian style tower is an inimitable place in the whole city, located in the heart of the capital. It was built in 1958 as a memorial to Cambodia’s independence from France in 1953. The Monument was designed by Vann Molyvann, an influential Cambodian architect.
The Independence Monument (Vimean Ekareach) was inaugurated on November 9, 1962, to celebrate the independence from the French in 1953. It is the site for celebrations and services surrounded by very large parks and fountains and the monument itself is the most impressive in the city.
The 20-meter high monument is shaped in the form of a lotus, which also can be seen at Angkor and other Khmer historical sites. This monument also serves as a proud testament to commemorate people who sacrificed their lives for the welfare of the country. The monument is captivating for its cool, serene atmosphere, which in turn makes it a much sought-after destination. At night it is lit with blue, red and white light (the colors of the national flag) and it is an impressive sight.
What a majestic treat it has been!😊
