Located between Norodom and Street 19, and streets 172 and 178, Wat Sarawan is one of the oldest Wats in Phnom Penh. There is a single standing Prasat (tower) that is over 100 years old in the center of the complex. In addition to the Prasat, there are quite a few other photo opportunities. It is home for plenty of monks as well as impoverished people looking for shelter. There is also a dragon boat housed on the premises which makes its appearance in the boat races every year. The best time to go is early in the morning when the sun is just coming up. You will get a nice shot of the red Prasat against a blue sky. It is also very active around Pchum Ben and many other Khmer Holidays.
