Its full name in the Khmer language is Preah Barum Reachea Veang Chaktomuk Serei Mongkol . The Kings of Cambodia have occupied it since it was built in 1860′s, with a period of absence when the country came into turmoil during and after the reign of the Khmer Rouge.The palace was constructed after King Norodom relocated the royal capital from Oudong to Phnom Penh in the mid-19th century. It faces towards the East and is situated at the Western bank of the cross division of the Tonle Sap River and the Mekong River.
