Photographer's Note

The walls encircling the center structures of Bayon in the Angkor Thom Complex feature elaborate stone wall-carvings called bas-reliefs. These stretch almost 100 meters on all 4 sides, with breaks at central and symetrical points for grand entrances and side doorways like the one depicted.

Although from this angle, one of the 4-faced towers can be seen framed within a side doorway on the east-facing wall, almost any other angle will actually get one of many other 4-faced towers into the door-frame anyway... there are that many!

As this is peak visitor season, you can't escape including visitors in all your pictures, seen here with a local guide telling the stories depicted in the carving sequence.... part of the history behind the 12th century Angkor Empire.
