The Bayon Temple

"The Bayon Temple, represents the intersection of heaven and earth.

Bayon is known for its huge stone faces of the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, with one facing outward and keeping watch at each compass point. The curious smiling image, thought by many to be a portrait of Jayavarman himself, has been dubbed by some the "Mona Lisa of Southeast Asia." There are 51 smaller towers surrounding Bayon, each with four faces of its own."

Ok, actually the text you just read is copy from some where in google. ^^
you know i can't write so well and so details right? hahahaha...

Just wanna share some information details about Bayon before you start viewing the pics below:

Hooi & WeiWei at the South Gate Angkor Thom.

The statue of Hindu gods and demons on the bridge.

One of the five gates with Hindu gods and demons.
Take a look nicely on the 7th statue, the head looks different from others rite?
because they replace the statue with a new head already.

The entrance of South Gate Angkor Thom.
is only a gate of entrance, but they build it so nicely

I climb up to the wall of the gate and here is the side of the gate.
and actually when see we see inside the top of the gate, got a lot of bats hanging up there.

After a short distance of driving, and here we reach at The Bayon Temple.
you can see that is a lots of people hanging around there visiting this place.

erm... Hooi and WeiWei acting Bollywood style?
