here's an excerpt from my blog, The Mediocre Wanderer: The first on our adventure was the Bayon temple. Expect to climb steep wooden steps, and rough, uneven sandstone blocks. We entered it through it's east gate, where the short walk from the tuktuk parking area is probably the easiest path you'll walk on in the entire structure.
Built 100 years after Angkor Wat, it's the next most amazing temple to see after the former, with it's 2000 faces carved on solid rock and 54 towers rising to the sky. It is a Buddhist temple, with pillars, surrounded by 4 faces, representing the omnipresent god. Bas reliefs at the first 2 areas tell of the battles, of a history built upon the blood of it's enemies, and it's people. Personally, it's my favorite temple.
