A Sacred Destination

Bayon Temple, Siem Reap
5 Jun 2013 | Isabel Reyes of Philippines

Here's another souvenir postcard from Isabel - a postcard showing the Bayon Temple. Bayon Temple is the spectacular central temple of the ancient city of Angkor Thom. The complex is located just to the north of the famous Angkor Wat.

It was built around 1190 AD by King Jayavarman VII. Bayon is a Buddhist temple but it incorporates elements of Hindu cosmology.
