Anchor Thom is a large complex founded in the late 12th century and part of the Khmer Empire. The main complex is made up of 54 towers all showing the all seeing four faces of a smiling Buddha. This complex is difficult to navigate as it requires a lot of walking, climbing and getting around large boulders. There is no vantage point to get an overall view of the place. Carvings and bas-reliefs abound. A guide is well worth the money in order to get the best of this visit.

Regarded as the "Great City", Angkor Thom was a fortified city of residences of priests and officials of the palace. The entrance alone already gives a glimpse of how grand it was. With stone sculptures lining the entrance (demons on the right and gods on the left) as if guarding the city. In the center is the temple of Bayon. This also houses the Terraces of the Elephants and the Leper King. It does take a lot of walking. But it is well worth it, if only to marvel at the 216 smiling faces of Avalokiteshvara that are carved on the walls.

Of course Bayon, but in addition the Leper and Elephant Terraces. Climb up to the edge at Victory gate for photos that are great. Have a look at the East gate for solitude. This's the center of the little circuit so expect huge crowds at the main sites though the place is huge so it is not hard to escape the crowds. Day two, complete huge circuit for much more breath taking temples but with a portion of the tourists.

This was the last capital of the Khmer empire. Today it is more known by the South gate that stands out as a masterpiece of stone tower and the great coiling stone snake held by both gods and demons, forming the bridge.
This is only the precursor for what is to follow.
As you cross the entrance gate, you are inside Angkor Thom and the Bayon temple is in front of you.
Later on you see the victory square and the Ta prohm temple.
