Baphoun Temple

Baphuon23 temple is west of the road to the Dei Chhang Gate and near the Bayon temple. The temple was built in the 11th century, around 1060 by King Udayadityavarman II (AD 1050-1066), dedicating to Brahmanism. A hightlight of the temple is the bas-reliefs, which differ from most others as they are vignettes carved in small stone squares set one above the other on the temple walls, similar to tilling. Unfortunately few of these are visible because of the poor state of the temple.

Baphuon is a single temple-mountain sanctuary situated on the high base symbolizing Mount Meru. A rectangular sandstone wall measuring 435 by 125meters long elevated eastern approach supported by three rows of short, round columns forming a bridge to the main temple. Originally, a central tower shrine with four porches crowned the peak, but it collapsed long ago. The first, second and third levels are surrounded by concentric sandstone galleries.

Make Inquiry Now

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
