The most famous thing about the Bayon Temple are the over 200 faces carved into the stone temple towers – some indistinct and crumbling and others perfectly preserved.
Bayon is less crowded than Angor Wat so you can even find a quiet space for a blessing under the sightless gaze of the ever-present faces.
