Black Palace

The Cambodian Mational Park Bokor is unique because of its wild life and unique surrounding nature. The core of the place is the Black Palace. Once you climb the mountain of the park you will be able to see the former royal house of the King Norodom Sihanouk. He received this Palace as a present during the times of the French colonization of the Khmer empire. Formerly the place was a unique symbol of luxury and royalty, however the time has its own power that is even more devastating than it may seem from the first site, therefore now the Palace is truly black with abundant and destroyed hallways, that resemble now a prison rather than royal rooms. Only the elegantly and beautifully crafted mosaics on the wall remains and the pale crackled piles of the white marble floor remind the visitors about the royal atmosphere of the place.
