The Buddha King of Angkor Wat

Each of the 23 towers of Angkor Thom, one of the largest sub-cities inside Angkor Wat, is covered with these faces. Like many of the remaining ruins, this one was built by king Jayavarman VII, whose face has been combined with Buddha’s throughout the city to create a combined royal and religious imposing presence that permeates the city.
