Stands Gracefully For Centuries

Bayon stands gracefully for centuries

Bayon stands gracefully for centuries

Last week on the way to the airport for going back to my home country, I stopped for a while at Bayon Temple, one of the most important temples in Angkor Archaeological Park. Being here so many times, but I’ve never getting bored to take pictures on this temple.

Prasat Bayon is a famous and richly decorated temple in Cambodia. Built in the late 12th or early 13th century as the official state temple of King Jayavarman VII, Prasat Bayon stands gracefully at the center of Jayavarman’s capital, Angkor Thom. Its most distinctive feature is the multitude of serene and smiling stone faces on many towers.

Standing there only for a couple of minutes in front of Prasat Bayon, -just to feel its admirable atmosphere-, I knew I could never say goodbye to Prasat Bayon, the majestic temple.
