Before French made Cambodia as its protectorate, temple was the only institution where men could access to traditional education in Cambodia. Later on educational system based on the French model was introduced and schools were built inside and next to temples. In the present time you still can find many schools located right inside temples either in Phnom Penh or in rural areas.

School in Cambodia Wat Tuol Tompong Primary School located inside the temple sharing the same name.
