Bayon at sunset, Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia

As we where cycling back, we caught a few photos of Bayon at sunset. The reds and blues were a nice backdrop to the silhouetted faces.

Bayon Temple – the 200 faces of Lokesvara, Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia

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.
