Preah Ang Dongker is a holy shrine located on the Phnom Penh riverside in front of the Royal Palace. Preah Ang Dongker is worshipped by Cambodian people, who believe that their wishes will come true if they pray there. The site is especially popular during student exams and Buddhist holy days where crowds flock to the shrine to worship and wish for good luck. They bring incense sticks and offer alms such as lotus and jasmine flowers, coconuts, candles, and fruit. Traditional music is played live at the site as a thank you for prayers that have been answered.

Preah Ang Dongker is an fascinating place to check out if you want to learn more about Cambodian religious practices and beliefs. From 4.30pm to dusk is a good time to visit.
