Prime Minister and First Lady Inaugurate Key Developments at Cambodian Buddhist Cultural Center

PHNOM PENH, May 30, 2024 — On the morning of Thursday, May 30, the Prime Minister of Cambodia, alongside the First Lady, Dr. Pech Chanmony Hun Manet, led the inauguration ceremony at the Cambodian Buddhist Cultural Center located within Suramarit-Kosamak National Park, Kirirom.

The ceremony marked the completion of significant developments within the center, which is undergoing an expansive enhancement project featuring 38 construction initiatives. These projects are thoughtfully designed to reflect the spiritual and cultural ethos of Cambodia, with the master plan mimicking the shape of a lotus leaf—a symbol of enlightenment and wisdom.

Among the noteworthy structures unveiled were the Great Trinity Temple and 84,000 stupas, which are strategically positioned around the newly erected Vipassana Monument, adding a layer of spiritual significance to the serene environment.

The major achievements introduced during this event included three key constructions: the majestic Great Temple, a network of nine concrete roads spanning 3,150 meters in length and six meters in width, and the expansive Vipassana monument. The latter encompasses 500 square meters dedicated to fostering Khmer-style meditation and Vipassana practices, providing a tranquil retreat for practitioners and visitors alike.

These enhancements are expected to significantly boost cultural tourism and spiritual education in the region, reinforcing the Cambodian Buddhist Cultural Center's role as a beacon of peace and wisdom.
