Bayon,Siem Reap, Cambodia

                                    Siem Reap Cambodia.

Bayon is one of the many different temple complexes in the Angkor archaeological park near Siem Reap. This would have to be one of the most recognised Wats from the area besides Angkor itself.

One of the four main gates leading into the Bayon complex.

                                                                        The rope pullers.

                                     One of the pleasure craft floating around on the surrounding moats.

Main entrance to the central structures.

A few of the tower faces on the main structure. 

                                              Some of the carvings around the structure.

There is still a lot of reconstruction happening on the site, Piles of rock to be resituated back into their                                                      original place or as near to as possible.


     This is part of one such pile all with their carved images facing outwards so as to be matched with                 other blocks of stone.

Local villiger fishing in the moat.
