Bayon Temple, Angkor Wat - Siem Reap, Cambodia

Bayon Temple Siem Reap Cambodia

Bayon is a temple you can’t miss! The temple is located within the center of Angkor Thom. Here you will get to see the four enormous stone faces of Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva. Throughout the temple are over 2000 faces carved in stone. 

Bayon is a three-level temple, so we explored the maze of dark passageways of the lower areas before climbing up the steep stairs to the third level. From the upper level, you can get a better view of the large stone faces. When we were there, we saw a group of Apsara dancers posing for photographs.
