Smiling Face of the God-King

The smiling face of the God-King is found on all five gates and also on all of the towers at the main temple, the Bayon (Magic Box). Jayavarman 7th was the last great Khmer king. Few people in the Western world knew about any of these ruins until 1860 because they were covered by jungle growth. Birds plant the seeds, and trees sprout everywhere.
