The Independence Monument in Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia, was built in 1958 following the country's independence from France.
It is in the form of a lotus-shaped stupa, of the style seen at the great Khmer temple at Angkor Wat and other Khmer historical sites. You can read more from wikipedia. Near the Independence Monument, I could see many other buddha statues.
The above photos were not taken very well because I took them from inside of the moving van.
