Bayon

Bayon is an absolutely monolithic Buddhist temple located in central Angkor Thom, being one of the two largest within the walls. ( Angkor Wat being the other) It was constructed in the late 12th century by Jayavarman VII. Bayon is one of the most recognisable of the Angkor ruins, and has had many art pieces based on it. Bayon

consists of 37 standing towers and 4 large faces pointing North, South, East and West. The most notable feature of Bayon is the real-life scenes depicted on the lower level walls which show a historical sea-battle between the Khmer and the Cham, although it isn't known which battle of the two majors it depicts. The best time to visit these ruins is around the middle of the day where the sunlight is brightest, as there's alot of vegetation around the site which renders it a bit dark for photography in the early morning and late afternoon. ou can expect to spend up to 2 hours here as there is so much to see, and it's one of the first places anybody should think of visiting when attending the AAP.
