Located in Chroy Changvar, some 20 kilometers north of Phnom Penh, the Memorial commemorates the end of 20 years of war and was inaugurated to celebrate the beginning of peace in Cambodia.
It serves also as a museum for future Cambodians to have clear knowledge of the Kingdom’s history. The museum houses important documents including research materials and exhibits that portray the deeds of Samdach Techo Hun Sen, the Prime Minister of Cambodia, demonstrating the process of carrying out the historic Win-Win policy; peacefully reintegrating the Khmer Rouge.

The Memorial is open to public. More than three million tourists had visited the Win-Win Memorial since it was inaugurated in December 2018.

The 33m high triangular monolith above the pentagon represents the three guarantees made to the Khmer Rouge – on life, jobs and property.
