Bayon Temple : Siem Reap, Cambodia

Part of the world famous destination of Angkor, the Bayon Temple features a sea of over 200 massive stone faces looking in all direction.

The curious smiling faces, thought by many to be a portrait of king Jayavarman VII himself or a combination of him and Buddha, are an instantly recognizable image of Angkor.

Built in the 12th century by King Jayavarman VII as part of a massive expansion of his capital Angkor Thom, the Bayon is built at the exact center of the royal city.
