Angkor Thom

Angkor Thom is a short distance from the more famous Angkor Wat. In some ways it is more impressive. Angkor Thom was the capital city of the Khmer Empire and the ruins cover 9 square kilometres.

The main entrance above the moat has scores of busts of gods and demons lining the sides.

The entrance into Bayon, the temple at the heart of Angkor Thom.
