Wat Preah Keo Morokat, or the Silver Pagoda, is located in the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The pagoda, which is the most famous in Cambodia, was built in 1962 to replace an earlier wooden temple. Tourists enjoy views of Wat Preah Keo Morokat, which gets its name from the 5,281 silver tiles inlaid through out the temple. The pagoda also contains many Cambodian treasures including gold and jeweled statues of Buddha. Some of the more notable treasures housed there include a small 17th century baccarat crystal Buddha, often referred to as the "Emerald Buddha" of Cambodia, and a life sized Maitreya Buddha encrusted with 9,584 diamonds.
