Smiling Bayon

The temple at Bayon is at the center of Angkor Thom of the Angkor complex and was built about 100 years after Angkor Wat. This temple has 4 smiling faces looking north, south, east, and west on EACH of the 54 towers.

Bayon is full of smiling faces throughout the temple, some say between 2,000 and 3,000! You feel like you are being watched...

How many can you count?

What a happy place. We were left in awe and our advice to all is to definitely put Angkor Wat and its many sites on your bucket list.
