Angkor Thom faces

Angkor Thom, meaning "large city", was the capital city and the center of King Jayavarman VII's vast empire. The King built the complex as an impregnable fortress at the heart of his empire from 1177 to 1181. The faces are said to be those of King Jayavarman himself, a reflection of his god-like status.
