    The lions remind me of the cat statue in Kuching, Sarawak. It is a major landmark in town and a lot of directions have references of the lions in them.  more »

    We discovered these statues by a tour around the city. Located in the middle of a large roundabout can be a little scary to get there. I know nothing about this statue, but it was great. And of gold. If it is worth watching? Well, you can probably stop and take a look at the if you go by, but I had not gone to Cambodia only for it.

    It is a quite striking roundabout, a lion with a Pearl in the mouth and a completely Golden lioness, is the entrance to the village. A roundabout without more, but the roundabouts for the Cambodians who cannot read or write is a form of guided. Nothing special

    Perhaps a good central for locals to enjoy their evening. Many bars and pubs surrounded.

    The lion statues are nice but not really impressive. They are not very detailed though it's clear we're looking at a male and female lion. At night more impressive thanks to the lighting. Would be nice to know why the male lion had a ball or pearl in his mouth.
