Phnom Penh came into existence in the 14th century. The city was closely linked to the traditional story of Wat Phnom pagoda, in a swamp tiny village with fishing as a sole occupation to earn a livelihood. A woman named Don Penh spotted a bodhi tree post a great flood near the river bank after which, the Lady Penh urged the local people to raise a small hill named Phnom and built a small pagoda called Wat Phnom to worship the four Buddha statues. The sanctity of this place enhanced the inhabitants migrating to this region ultimately to form a community considered as the predecessor of the capital Phnom Penh. To commemorate the lady, the king christened the city with the name Phnom Penh. Come to this city full of organized chaos and find yourself amazed by it!
