A new stage in the life of the country

Built in 1958 to commemorate the end of the colonial area and the departure of the French, the Independence Monument marked the beginning of a new stage in the life of the country, although today it is a symbol of the wreckage wrought during the Cambodian civil war. The monument stands on the city's largest and most congested roundabout on Preah Sihanouk Samdach Blvd. and Preah Norodom Blvd. It made of garnet and covered with "nagas" (a mythical species of snake). There is not much to do there, but when you're on your way to the Royal Palace, for instance, you can take a detour to snap a souvenir photo or take a walk in the park that runs from the roundabout down to the river.
