Note The Chanchhaya Pavilion was built in 1913-1914 to an identical plan and in the same style as the original wooden building constructed by King Norodom in 1866, when he transferred his residence to Phnom Penh. It served successively as a training place for the Royal Ballet, a venue for dance performances for visiting dignitaries, and as the Royal Tribune, from which the Cambodian head of state addresses crowds. Recently it has been used for state banquets. It is located near the northeast corner of the wall enclosing the Palace grounds.
