Artist's Description

Bayon Temple, Angkor Thom, Cambodia

Built in the late 12th century or early 13th century as the official state temple of the Mahayana Buddhist King Jayavarman VII, 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. (Thanks to Wikipedia).

Here you see a Buddhist monk surveying the temple ruins. Six hundred years ago a similar monk may have stood here surveying the newly built temple.
