What people are saying:

This is one of the most impressive of the astonishingly beautiful complex of temples that surround Siem Reap. It’s very close to Angkor Wat but very different. It’s also quite a small temple but full of atmosphere. I visited it twice as I purchased a (non particularly cheap) 3 days ticket and the second time it was almost the sunset and I found that it’s particularly beautiful in this kind of light. If you happen to visit Siem Reap don’t miss it, if you’re considering a trip there, this is one more reason to go. :)

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.
