1 Towering Face Sculpture Ta Prohm in Angkor Archaeological Park, Cambodia

People casually familiar with the Angkor Archaeological Park might assume this large, four-faced sculpture is part of Bayon. Instead, this 13th century gopura is located along the fifth enclosure (outer wall) of Ta Prohm. The image represents Lokeshvara who is a bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism. Some historians believe the likeness is of Jayavarman VII’s father. Dharanindravarman II was the King of the Khmer Empire from 1150 to 1160.
