We visited here as part if our sunrise Angkor Wat tour and it didn't disappoint.
The serenely smiling faces were originally carved on 54 stone towers (representing the original 54 states of Cambodia) throughout the Bayon Temple at Angkor Thom, literally meaning the "Great City."

Different meanings depending on who you ask. One comment was when praying the front view is for business and wealth, left hand side wisdom, back view is health and the right hand side is for relationships. Another view and one I liked was the four faces represent simplicity, compassion, equanimity and wisdom.

It is an incredible place and a must visit! With the amount of huge stone stacked up near the site you can only imagine what it must have looked like after it was built.

Amazing!

this temple within the Angkor Thom complex is simply beautiful. And at the moment, when not many tourists are in Cambodia, it is amazing to just take in the atmosphere.

Rent a bike and travel around the temples. Go beyond Angkor wat and cycle around the ramparts of this stunning Bayon Temple.

It will blow your mind and keep you looking at every inch of the temple. You will need time to view. Go early.
