Arizona State University.
Southeast Asia Digital Library
The Baphuon temple is located to the northwest of the Bayon and was built as one of Udayadityavarman II’s (1050-1066) most ambitious state temples in the capital Yasodhurapura. It contains remarkable bas-reliefs panels featuring both Buddhist and Hindu subject matter. The monument underwent complete anastylosis in the 1960s, but the process was interrupted by civil disturbances. The process of restoration was revived in the mid 1990s and finished in 2006 by École Française d’Extrême-Orient.
