The Independence Monument of Cambodia, located in the eastern part of Phnom Penh, commemorates Cambodia's complete independence from French colonial rule on November 9, 1953. Cambodia was occupied by France in 1863 and by Japan in 1940. After Japan surrendered in 1945, French colonists returned and invaded Cambodia again. In order to strive for independence and liberation, the Cambodian people have waged a long and heroic struggle. The name of the exhibition hall of Phnom Penh National Museum is still not remembered. The exhibits are mainly stone sculptures, mainly Buddha statues. Most of them come from Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. There are also some jewelry and bronzes. There is a hall with some wooden seats, carriages. What impressed me deeply was that there were many small blue and red glass grains made of bracelets unearthed with a funeral.
The Independence Monument is located in the center of Independence Square in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The monument is at the intersection of Norodom Avenue and Sihanouk Avenue. The Independent Monument is a unique typical Khmer building with seven-storey towers carved with hundreds of dragon and snake gods. The tower is 36 meters tall and 37 meters tall. It was built in 1958 and completed in 1962. It was designed by top designers in Cambodia. The Monument to Independence was built to commemorate Cambodia's liberation from French colonial rule and its martyrs on 9 November 1953.

A monument representing the independence of the Cambodian people stands tall in sight, standing in the middle of the road, surrounded by no longer a sense of forcing, brilliant flowers have swayed in the wind, the sun shines warmly on the monument in the dawn showing brown color. But it is a point of comparison for those who visit Phnom Penh, which was built to commemorate Cambodia's complete independence from French colonial rule on November 9, 1953. To be honest, the previous understanding of Cambodia only stayed until the civil war, always unstable, people live in deep water. That's all. Even if I stepped on this land in Phnom Penh today, my understanding of it is still on the surface, and I want to see in my heart how far Cambodia has developed in the process of recovery, and I want to know what the brilliance of Cambodia once was and what the miracle was. With these curiosity, I came to Cambodia and had a close contact with the people of Cambodia for seven days. Get off the bus, go into the point, and look carefully - "The monument is 37 meters high, the base is 36 meters wide, and there are seven layers of lotus bud pagoda on the four pillars. Each floor is surrounded by seven snake gods "Naga" sculptures, a total of 100 heads in the air. At that time, I did not know that the serpent god was closely related to the beliefs of the Cambodian people and that the search for the highest nine-headed serpent god had disappeared. Then the seven-headed serpent god had made me start to notice that "Naga" was regarded as the sacred symbol of the origin of the Cambodian country and the preserver of the prosperity of the kingdom, as well as the subject matter widely used in ancient Cambodian art. Later Angkor Wat will be everywhere.
Therefore beautiful during resplendent and daytime in its nightly color... such appealing emblem of a nation breaking out of the mold of its, recreating itself, reinventing itself. Anything else around it's changing, but, it appears still...a remembrance of days gone by, a representation of new possibilities
The Independence Monument, the local landmark, as its name implies, is a symbol of Cambodia's freedom from colonial rule. Located in the city center of Phnom Penh, there are many cars in the past, and the lighting effect is good at night. It is worth enjoying the night scenery. When crossing the street, we should pay attention to safety. There are too many motorcycles here.
