Photographer's Note

Built in the XIIth century by Jayavarman VII, Angkor Thom was the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer Empire. It is one of the city temples located near the touristic Siem Reap, in Cambodia.

Constructed in the late 12th century or early 13th century as the official state temple, the Bayon stands at the centre of Jayavarman's capital, Angkor Thom. Following Jayavarman's death, it was modified and augmented by later Hindu and Theravada Buddhist kings in accordance with their own religious preferences.

In the picture, you see a young Cambodian in front of one of the big Buddha faces of Bayon.

Cropped, increased sharpness, applied retouches.
