What people are saying:

amazing temple with a different feel than ankor wat. I liked it because it represented its age well with crumbling stone mixed in with the beautiful architecture that once was. was a very authentic experience less crowded than the main temple, but not far away

Additional Information

Introduction

Discover the extraordinary architecture of the Bayon, a 12th century Khmer temple, and the Cambodian history traced in its walls. This imposing and intricate stone structure is a pleasure for the casual sight-seer and the scholar alike. Originally built in the 1300's as the official state temple in the Mahayana Buddhist style, it was later modified to suit the Hindu and Theravada Buddhist Kings that followed. The Bayon is also famous for its bas-reliefs, which depict mythological and historical scenes in unique combination, most likely because of the Temple's complicated cultural background.
