Baphoun Temple Tour
Welcome to Baphuon complex. Baphuon is part of the Angkor Small Circut, which takes you to all the “must-see” temples in the Angkor Archaeological Park. It is located within the Angkor Thom complex approximately 200m northwest of Prasat Bayon.
This is a beautiful 11th century “temple-mountain” with steep stairs leading visitors to a terrace which offers one of the best views in the Angkor Archaeological Park. . Archaeologists believe that this pyramid-style temple, located within the city of Angkor Thom was probably among the most impressive of the Angkor temples in its day. Unfortunately, the ravages of time and Mother Nature caused significant damage to this magnificent temple, and it was very nearly lost to history. The tale of how it was restored is just as impressive as the structure itself.The best time for you to visit Baphuon is in the morning or late afternoon as there is no shade available on the long walkway, and the steep climb to the top can be very taxing during the hottest part of the day. You might need at least an hour to explore Baphuon with the guided audio plus your self-exploration. This will give you enough time to wander around the site and climb to the summit. Duration: 60 minutes max
