The Bayon - Review
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.

The Bayon, Siem Reap Reviews
Loved being up close with these extraordinary statues. The color, age, and ruggedness makes you feel history. Can't describe the feeling of walking in between each unique piece and the stories that they tell.
My favorite temple of all. Very impressive to see those faces on each side of the temple towers. Depending on where you stand and what direction you look at you can align the faces with your nose tip. Late afternoon you can shoot some amazing pictures due to a special sun reflection on the temple. Do not skip the visit of this temple, its the must seen on your list.
This temple is together with Angkor Watt the most popular attraction in the archaeological site of Angkor. The Bayon is so well-known because of his richly decorations in Khmer architectural style with ,for example, the 200 smiling faces and the more than 50 towers. The position is also unique since it's exactly in the middle of the city with direct access to the 4 main gates.
one of the great magnificent charming ancient temple, the stunning bas-reliefs is so impressive and provide so many historical related information. just walk slowly and try to understand the informative that ancient ancestor people try to communicate with us within the long huge wall panel crafting galleries masterpiece.
Bayon Temple or Angkor Thom temple is one great temple locate in Siem Reap where many other wonder temples in. This Temple has many for 4faces which designed very different shape and smile . It's my favorite one and I never miss to stop by there to visit every i travel there. Bayon has also a secret well where they believe if you drop floating things then it will appear in Baray lake.
