My second trip thirteenth years later to this mind boggling city was even more fascinating than the first time. This giant carving of stone buddha face at Bayon Temple, has a mysterious and artistic presence, that left me staring at it for a while. ​

Angkor Wat (Khmer or "Capital Temple") is a temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world, on a site measuring 162.6 hectares (1,626,000 m2; 402 acres) It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple of god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century.It was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman in the early 12th century in Yasodharapura (present-day Angkor), the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and eventual mausoleum. Breaking from the Shaiva tradition of previous kings, Angkor Wat was instead dedicated to Vishnu. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation.​​
