I guess many have heard the name of Tampa block, but not many have witnessed it. I have make more than a little of exploration of Phnom Penh architectures, yet I am still amazed by this site even after my repeated visit. It is enclosed in a shape of big rectangle, and originally there was a big open space in the middle. Sadly more than a score of years back, houses were erected in the open space. Not surprisingly, such a great iconic building does not get the care it deserves, and now is dangerously deteriorating.
