Bayon is a Buddhist shrine located at Angkor in Siem Reap, Cambodia. You can count 216 smiling, serene faces, carved onto gigantic towers. The heads of Bayon were carved to look like Jayavarman VII. Since the construction of the temple, several of these towers have toppled.
The Bayon Temple is located at the heart of Angkor Thom and served as the state temple of the Emperor Jayavarman VII. It is a mountain temple which represents Mount Meru – the center of the universe in both Hindu and Buddhist mythology.
