Image of UNESCO's World Heritage Site of Baphuon, located near Siem Reap, Cambodia. It is a three-tiered temple mountain built in the mid-11th century as the state temple of Udayadityavarman II, dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva. In the late 15th century, the Baphuon was converted to a Buddhist temple and a 9 meter tall by 70 meter long statue of a reclining Buddha was built on the west side's second level. It is the archetype of the Baphuon style.
