Original Postcards & Document

Year: 1905


The town takes its name from an artificial ridge (Phnom Penh “Solid mound”) at the summit of which rises a pagoda and a large chedei build of bricks. The ascent is by a staircase bordered with Nagas and Dvârapâlas or temple guardians. The slopes of the ridge have been laid out in gardens.
La Ville tire son nom d’une butte artificielle (Phnom Penh “Montagne pleine”) au sommet de laquelle s’élève une pagode et un chedei en brique. On y monte par un escalier bordé de Nagas et de Dvârapâlas ou gardiens de temples. Les pentes de la butte ont été amenagées en jardins. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
