Bayon Temple, Angkor Wat, Cambodia
In contrast to the grand sprawl of the Angkor Wat complex, Bayon was at the heart of the what was the largest known settlement complex of the pre-industrial world. It’s known that the temple once consisted of over 200 smiling stone faces carved into the 50 towers. Today only 37 towers remain.
This stunning and compact temple is located just a few miles from the Cambodian town of Siem Reap.
