Bayon Temple

The Bayon is a richly decorated Khmer temple related to Buddhism at Angkor in Cambodia. Built in the late 12th or early 13th century as the state temple of the King Jayavarman VII, the Bayon stands at the centre of Jayavarman’s capital, Angkor Thom. The Bayon’s most distinctive feature is the multitude of serene and smiling stone faces of The Buddha – probably modeled on the face of King Jayavarman VII – on every side the many towers.
