The temple's official name is Preah Vihear Preah Keo Morakot but is commonly referred to as Wat Preah Keo in Khmer. The building is a vihara, a shrine hall, as well as a wat, a Buddhist temple; it is the official temple of the the King of Cambodia. The vihara houses many national treasures such as gold and jeweled Buddha statues. Most notable is a small 17th century baccarat crystal Buddha (the "Emerald Buddha" of Cambodia) and a life-sized gold Maitreya Buddha (created 1906-1907) decorated with 9584 diamonds, the largest of which weighs 25 carats. The grounds contain stupas of the royal family. It was founded under Norodom I (reigned 1860-1904). The pagoda compound contains several buildings and the Reamker murals, which are under a portico on a wall that separates the pagoda area from the palace.
