Angkor, Cambodia

Upon closer observation of the Bayon Temple near Cambodia’s equally amazing Khmer temple of Angkor Wat, you may find that you are under observation, too. Each of the temple’s 37 towers features 4 faces of a Buddhist god serenely smiling down upon temple guests. If you can take your eyes away from the ever-present being, the lovely Apsaras, or female water spirits, gracing the temple walls are just as beguiling.
