Bayon

Giant stone faces greet visitors as they enter the Bayon complex. This ancient Khmer center houses over 200 of these serene faces, with theories they were modeled after the bodhisattva (enlightened being) or the Bhuddist king, Jayavarman VII, who built the city center.

Sunrise at the The Bayon Temple

5:30 am. Before the sweltering heat kicks in. Before the throngs of tourists arrive. Before the temples of Angkor buzz with activity.

While most early risers make their way to Angkor Wat, we moved a little farther on...to the Bayon Temple. As the sun rose on the Temple of Smiles, we were alone among the ruins, surrounded by the smiling statues, the cool morning air, and...silence.
