Precipitating the Bafang Temple, the gaze at the Mount Sumi
Bafang Temple is the center of the city at the middle of the 11th century. It is now 200 meters northwest of Bayan Temple, next to the southern wall of the Royal Palace. The Bafang Temple is known as the world's largest and most complex three-dimensional building.
Bafang Temple is a temple of Sumiyama, in the shape of a pyramid. The entire temple has a total of 5 floors, and there is a closed corridor on the 1st, 3rd and 5th floors. There are towers in the center and four corners of the four sides of the corridor. On the 5th floor, there is a stone pagoda wrapped in a huge copper skin about 50 meters high, which is higher than the golden pagoda in the center of the Bayan Temple in the southeast. The highest point of the copper tower symbolizes the center of everything in the universe. Don't forget that the Bafang Temple is located in the center of the capital city at that time. Which king wants his king city to be the center of the "world", and all the people must turn around him.

Due to the age and collapse of the Bafang Temple, during the French colonial period, the maintenance team began to find ways to restore his original appearance. The maintenance team removed the pieces of stone and numbered them. Each stone was marked with the number on the printed document, and then the stones were placed on the nearby ground for finishing. Unexpectedly, in 1975, the Khmer Rouge took power and all the repair work stopped instantly. In the short three years of the Khmer Rouge, these original restoration documents disappeared. The original staff members were arrested and slaughtered because many of them were intellectuals. So in the end, the Bafang Temple became a pile of stones that the group did not return.

Talk about the legend of "Tibetan". In ancient times, the kings of the Siamese kingdom and the king of the true wax country were two brothers. Once, the King of Siam proposed to put his children in the real king to be fostered. The king is also very happy to accept this proposal. However, the ministers of the imperial court of the country are opposed: this is the conspiracy of the King of Siam, and the future Siamese prince will usurp the throne of this country. So the king of Zhenla killed the Siamese prince. The angry King of Siam allowed the army to attack the country. This is because the king of the true country is afraid that his child will be killed by the other party and he will be hiding in the monastery. Therefore, this temple was called "Bafang (Tibetan)".
