Always loved this temple of 200 faces - also fascinating mural depicting life at that time. Great place for photos!

Bayon temple is famous as it has the faces which are supposed to be of King JayaVerman-8. A lovely place to make a visit. Rich Cambodian history. Its amazing how they built these structures in those times. Do take a guide.
