WPC – Variations On Smiling Stone Faces

Bayon Temple, -as one of the must-see temple in Angkor-, is an unique Khmer temple in Angkor Archaeological Park, Cambodia. It’s built in the late 12th or early 13th century as the official state temple of King Jayavarman VII and located in the centre of the kingdom’s capital, Angkor Thom, not far from Angkor Wat.  Bayon temple is famous because of its smiling stone faces on the towers on the upper terrace.

And please notice further, is it the same face? 🙂
