With the theme, "Cultural Life in the City," the exhibition hall fully embodies Cambodia's sense of cultural heritage protection with its three historical periods: Angkor, Odong, and Phnom-Penh periods. These three periods witnessed Cambodian development since its establishment to modern day. The pavilion features the country's rich culture, art, historical relics, and abundant natural resources.
Stone-built architecture in the Angkor Period, including the royal monasteries, temples, Buddha statues, roads and bridges are displayed in the pavilion, taking visitors to the ancient eras.
