Temples 3 – Baphuon

Just around the corner, but still part of the Angkor Thom complex, is another imposing temple – Baphuon

Great views over the surrounding countryside, which is kept in order by hand

A huge structure

A very steep climb to the top

Collonade around the edge

Pyramid in the middle

More views

And a steep climb down

All the way down.

Do you see the reclining Buddha?

Here’s the face

A buddist shine

A rare statue

So many carvings!

One elephant

More elephants… There are 300 m of stone elephants!

A yummy coconut on the way home to the hotel

Where delicious food and drinks replenish our energy levels and the pool cools us off.
