The Bayon temple in Angkor site has 54 towers, which represent the 54 days in the two cycles of the lunar calendar. The number 54 is considered incredibly lucky in astrological terms. This is also the reason that King Jayavarman VII decided to arrange the layout of his nation into 54 provinces. In this way, the Bayon temple actually replicates the Khmer lands.

Until 1916, the Bayon temple was overgrown by the jungle, and then the French decided to clear it out and fix it up. At first it was assumed that Bayon was a Hindu temple, built sometime in the 9th century. But as things progressed, it came to light that it was in fact a Buddhist temple, built in the 12th century. This was because on the four outside walls a face is portrayed. At the time it was taken to be Brahma, but has since been found to be the face of Jayavarman VII. Once the excavations had started, many Buddhas were to be found as well as Sanskrit texts detailing the function of this beautiful old temple. Now you can share in this delightful part of history, with this magnificent replication of one of the statues to be found in the inner gallery of the temple.
