This is really the most beautiful temple in Angkor even it is not the biggest one. I can recommend to hire a professional guide there as the history of this place is really amazing. The best time to visit is early morning as there could be very hot around lunch time.

It is very close temple to Angkor Wat. The temple is renown for its styles and it was built for Buddhism Religion?

A bit shadowed by Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm, Bayon temple was my favorite temple by far. So many faces sculpted out of the rock. It's a photographer's paradise. Be sure to take a nose-to-nose profile shot as it is one of the best to come out of my trip (you'll see a lot of tourists doing the same). Beautiful... More

a further example of the ability of people so many years ago. Apparently the area was the largest city in the world during the 12 century

As you explore the temple, pay attention to the many faces inside. This temple is crowded all day, try late afternoon which wasn't too bad.

I loved the face carvings on this temple. There are lots of monkeys living at this temple and I they seemed friendly. We kept our distance as there were lots of babies amongst them. This was the busiest temple we visited.

In some ways, this is more impressive than Angkor Wat. It has 50+ towers instead of AW's 5 but it was damaged in fire so is more derelict. Some great carvings to be seen here.
