The Silver Pagoda occupies one of the 3 main compounds within the famous
The gardens of the compound in which the Silver Pagoda is located are impressive also, as the Pagoda itself sits proud and haughty amid a selection of uniquely beautiful religious and more functional buildings, all ornately decorated nevertheless, which include shrines, stupas, and galleries. Royal ceremonies are performed in the pagoda, as are sermons delievered by monks.
The Royal Palace costs US6.25 for access to all the buildings in the entire site and the Silver Pagoda is located in one of the three main compounds of the palace.
The Royal Palace is open all day long, and can get quite busy. We'd recommend allowing around half an hour to explore the Silver Pagoda and it's surrounding buildings.
The rest of the palace of course! Also, the Russian Market or National Museum are located nearby within the center of town. Further afield are other sites of interest such as Ta Mao Zoo or the Killing Fields.
