Old stone lion found near Wat Phnom

An old stone lion statue was found at Wat Phnom during work for a new drainage system in Phnom Penh.

Although there has been no detailed research on the history of this lion sculpture, it should be noted that this is the former site of Wat Langka, which was demolished by the French governor and rebuilt around Boeung Keng Kang in Buddhist year 2441, which corresponds to AD 1898, more than 120 years ago.
