Located at the heart of Cambodia's Capital Phnom Penh, the Central Market is the largest market in Phnom Penh. Also known as Psar Thmey or the New Grand Market this building was first built in 1937.
It is a sprawling building with a central dome and four corridors extending out from it. The building was designed by Jean Desbois, whereas French architect Louis Chauchon managed the construction. Much bigger markets and malls have mushroomed all over the world now, but in 1937, when the Central Market first opened, popular belief was that it was the biggest market in Asia.
