Bayon the face of Jayavarman VII

Bayon the face of Jayavarman VII
People believe that all this 216 faces are a portraiture of the "Leper King of Cambodian legend" Jayavarman VII.
According to scholars, it is no coincidence that a portrait of King Jayavarman VII, located today in the Musée Guimet in Paris, bears a strong resemblance to the face towers of the Bayon.
