Amid The Ruins Of Baphuon

Amid The Ruins

Built in the middle of the 11th century under King Udayadityavarman II and dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, Baphuon has been described by historians of the 13th century as one of the most beautiful temples of its time. Despite artists having resurrected it in its all glory on canvas, and modern day architects claiming that it would once have been among the most magnificent to feature in the whole of the Angkor temples group, Baphuon has suffered greatly at the hands of Mother Nature over the course of time and has for many years now been under a permanent course of restoration.
