The Grand Baphuon Temple Angkor Thom Siem Reap Cambodia
Baphuon Temple is a large Hindu temple with a grand 225 meter long elevated walkway built in the 11th century dedicated to the Lord Shiva. In the 15th Century it was converted into Buddhist temple with the addition of a reclining Buddha on the second level on the west side of the temple.
Baphuon Temple has undergone a massive restoration with over 300,000 stone blocks numbered and assembled. The restoration began in the 1960’s but was suspended when civil war broke out in Cambodia in 1970. The Khmer Rouge destroyed the documentation and plans for the restoration of Baphuon Temple. In 1996 architect Pascal Royère took up the task of renewing the restoration and was able to use more modern technology to assist in the reconstruction of the temple. After 16 years of restoration the temple was opened to the public.
