One of the wonders at the temple complex of Angkor is Bayon, the state temple of Jayavarman VII, which stood at the center of Angkor Thom. The face towers are Bayon's most distinguishing features. Of the 49 original towers, 37 remain; most are graced by four faces looking in the cardinal directions.
