Baphuon Temple

Many temples in Angkor started out dedicated to Hindu gods, but were later converted to Buddhism. Instead of destroying evidence of the former religion like in so many other countries, in Angkor you often find bas reliefs carvings showing different gods. Can be confusing but I concentrated on admiring the architecture and craftsmanship.

Quite a long walkway leading up to the temple. Baphuon used to be surrounded by a water moat like many other temples in Angkor.

Some monkey business going on here too.
