Bayon Temple: Buddha Up Close

The most striking feature of Bayon Temple is it’s very flagrant display of the face of Budhha. That, after coming from a very Hindu Angkor Wat and surrounding temples.

The hundreds of biiig Buddha faces can be quite… intimidating, but also fascinating.

We spent a lot of time trying to do the trademark Bayon photo: nose-to-nose with Buddha. But given the heat and the difficult angle requirement, we didn’t quite perfect it, I think. Although I took a pretty good shot of one of my friends. I’ll ask her if I can post it here.

For now, here are the many Buddha faces at Bayon temple.
