66 bayon


"Stone sculpture at the bayon, central temple of Angkor Thom" I took this photo when I visited Siem Reap, Cambodia in 1993. Angkor is meaning the Royal City of the Khmer Empire. It was built between the 9th and 14th centuries. Ankor architecture come from a mix of hinduism and buddhism. It's built in classic indian styles. (Negative film,1993)
