Photographer's Note

Two monks walk through the ruins of the Bayon.

The Bayon was the last state temple to be built at Angkor - in the late 12th century or early 13th century and almost a century after Angkor Wat. There are some significant changes in style which leads archeologists to believe that the Bayon was built over a long period of time. It was the official state temple of the Mahayana Buddhist King Jayavarman VII.
