The Bayon Temple

The most historical site present in A well-known, Khmer temple in Cambodia, The Bayon, is richly decorated and pleasing to the eyes. It was built as the official state temple in around the 12th or 13th century for the Mahayana Buddhist king Jayavarman VII. The temple is in the center of the Angkor Thom, i.e., the capital of Jayavarman. But later on, when the king, Jayavarman, passed away, it was modified by the Hindu and the Ravada Buddhist kings for their religious preferences.

What makes the Bayon different, from others is that it has serene and smiling stone faces on many of its towers. And this makes one of the distinctive features of this temple. These towers protrude from the terrace and cluster around the central peak.
The temple also has two impressive sets of bas-reliefs. These present an unusual combination of mythological, historical, and some mundane scenes. The Japanese Government Team which is a conservatory body for the safeguarding of Angkor described the temple as, “the most striking expression of the baroque style” of Khmer architecture, as contrastedwith the classical style of Angkor Wat.
