Bayon Temple

Bayon is a temple lying next to Angkor Wat that you should not miss when you come to Cambodia. Bayon temple was built in 12th century under King Jayavaraman VII and this temple located right in the center of Angkor Thom capital city. The temple includes 54 towers, and all of them were sculpted the face of Lokesvara God, also known as Avalokitesvara.

People believed that the faces of God on the towers are representative for the observation into 4 sides of Cambodia. Bayon temple is face to the East but the building inside was built in a row, stretching from the East to the West.

The temple has no surrounding moat or wall but it was protected by the design of the city: it is the arrangement of city – temple, with an area of 9 km2, larger than Angkor Wat in the South. Bayon temple includes 2 galleries and the top terrace and all of them connect to a small space in the middle.

Unlike the magnificent Angkor Wat, the Bayon is well known as a truly impressive and enormous architectural wonder. It is a richly decorated and sacred temple built by the Khmer. “Breathtaking; inspirational; beautiful and amazing must see destination” are what people say about Bayon. So why don’t you book a package, get on the plane and explore Cambodia yourself?
