Bayon Temple, Angkor Wat National Park, Siem Reap, Combodia

The Bayon was the last state temple to be built at Angkor , and the only Angkorian state temple to be built primarily as a Mahayana Buddhist shrine dedicated to the Buddha, though a great number of minor and local deities were also encompassed as representatives of the various districts and cities of the realm. It was the centrepiece of Jayavarman VII’s massive program of monumental construction and public works.
