Baphoun

• The Baphuon is located in Angkor Thom, northwest of the Bayon. Built in the mid-11th century, it is a three-tiered mountain temple built as the state temple of Udayadityavarman II and dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva. It is the archetype of the Baphuon style.
• The temple adjoins the southern enclosure of the royal palace and measures 120 metres east west by 100 metres north south at its base and stands 34 meters tall without its tower, which would have made it roughly 50 meters tall.
• A 9-metre tall by 70-metre long statue of a reclining Buddha was built on the west side's second level, which probably required the demolition of the 8 meter tower above, thus explaining its current absence. The temple was built on land filled with sand, and due to its immense size the site was unstable throughout its history. Large portions had probably already collapsed by the time the Buddha was added.
• It underwent an problematic restoration over more than 50 years and finally re-opened to the public in 2011.
