Phnom Bakheng a Hindu temple is situated on a hill offering view of the entire Angkor complex. Angkor Wat can just be seen in the distance.
Extremely popular during sunset, we didn’t see what the fuss was all about.
From Ankor Wat we cycled to Ankor Tom, literally Great City, passing through the south gate and towards the central Bayon Temple.
Bayon Temple is famous for the large carved faces protruding from above the temple. The hundreds of faces are that of Lokesvara the bodhisattva, Walking around the temple was quite surreal as openings led to being presented by the images of a large stone face. At the lower levels were a maze of passageways which were easy to get lost in.
