Where in the world is this?
Named as Prasat Bayon by the Khmers, the Bayon Temple is one of the most visited, most photographed, and widely known temples in Angkor, Cambodia. This magnificent temple was built by Mahayana Buddhist King Jayavarman VII in the late 12th to early 13th century. Because of its unique feature, the stone faces which are prominent on its towers, this temple is a favorite by tourists from around the world. And just like in Angkor Wat, you will really see a lot of tourists around the area. Literally. They say, the stone faces you see on the towers bear the image of King Jayavarman VII.
"The average tourist wants to go to places where there are no tourists." - Sam Ewing
