Baphuon is in the Angkor Thom area situated in serene surroundings that allow you to appreciate the beauty of the building and consider it's history and that is was restored so we can enjoy & learn. The giant reclining Buddha on an outer wall is remarkable and the views from the top are wonderful

Beautiful temple set a part of the other temple compound, the temple was ruin but you will be amazed with the structure and architect. Worth to pay a visit

I felt this was one of the most beautiful. The big walk in "bridge" makes for a sight. Felt it was huge and awe inspiring. Too bad it was closed at the time we went by. I am pretty sure it opens because there were stairs and visit guidelines but we oursleves didn´t get to climb up top. Seems to... More

This amazing three tiered Temple is dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva. This temple took 51 years to restore and was only opened in 2011. There are a lot of steps so make sure you wear good shoes and some water. But the views are marvelous. If your not so ambitious then take a stroll along the Walkway.

The temple is very impressive and unique. The views from the top of the temple is stunning as well. However, do keep in mind the stairs are very narrow and amazingly steep. Many tourist were afraid to get down but they probably did in the end! All in all, don't skip this temple. Simply stunning indeed.

This was the first temple I visited in the Angkor Thom complex. It is beautiful, and at the very top--if you have the stomach--you can get a lay of the Land of Thom! Particularly beautiful is the West end of the Baphuon. During the 1960's to the 1970's, the entire Baphuon was taken apart stone by stone, and lay in... More

A stone causeway connected the three tired temple. It was built in mid 11 th century by Udayadityabarman II . It was dedicated to Lord Shiva later it was transformed into Buddhist temple. To visit upper tiers one need to use steep wooden stairs . A word of caution those who are not physically fit should not try to climb... More

Walking up to this temple (near bayon) that I had never even read about, I was stunned. it is almost as impressive as Bayon & Angkor Wat themselves. It is a very high, with very steep stairs, but the view from the top (and the cool breeze) is worth it. The entrance way from the front is beautifully picturesque and... More
