The Independence Monument (Vimean Ekareach) is situated at the cross of the Sihanouk and the Norodom Boulevards in the center of Phnom Penh. It was built in 1958 to commemorate the country's victory against the French regime. The monument has the shape of a lotus shaped stupa which is familiar in the Angkor Vat's image and also the great Khmer historical sites. It was designed by famous Cambodian architect Vann Molyvann. It is 20 meters high and made of red stone. Its construction was implemented as the order of King Norodom who was King Sihanouk's father. In national celebrations especially the Independence Day, the monument is the center of attraction. At these times, there are many activities for local and international tourists to enjoy a nice time here.

It’s an endless attraction for Independence Monument during the Independence Day’s eve. A high or royal official set a ceremonial flame in the interior pedestal and line up the floral tributes on the stairs. And people lay down coronals to commemorate the heroes who have contributed their lives for country’s independence.

Independence Monument is a notable sight in Phnom Penh. Tourists can sit here, enjoy the solitude and take photographs. It’s also a wonderful place to enjoy the quietude and the summer refreshing breezes from the Tonle Sap.
