The main temple in the Angkor region was once Phnom Bakheng, built in the 9th century. It was originally a Hindu temple dedicated to Shiva but was later transformed into a Buddhist temple.
Phnom Bakheng is located on top of a hill and represents Mount Meru, home of the Hindu Gods. The number of levels, towers, sides, and symmetry all have symbolic meaning. They represent the number of Gods, the lunar phases, and the 12-year cycle of Jupiter. The seven levels represent the seven heavens.
Once converted to a Buddhist temple a statue of Buddha was added. Remains of a Reclining Buddha are still evident.
The temple has great historical significance. Along with two others, it was built by King Yasovarman.
