Bayon

Built by the great Kmer King Jayavarman VIII these huge faces of Avalokiteshivara, perhaps also portraits of the King himself, dominate the surrounding landscape. The temple was built in the twelfth century.
I am back somewhat sooner than I expected having spent a week in hospital instead of the two and a half weeks of wild orchid hunting planned in Spain. The best laid plans....still I guess you gotta roll with the punches :)
