This is one of the biggest temples in Angkor and one of the oldest in the world. It was the state temple of the great Buddhist King Jayavarman VII. While Angkor Wat is known for its grandness, Bayon is known for its minimalistic beauty. Great mythologies have been tightly compressed and projected onto the walls of the temple. The architecture is old but the temple stands tall and is very significant, both historically and spiritually. The khmer designs are overwhelmingly intricate. Those interested in history, will love this place.
