Bayon is also known for their incredible bas-reliefs which cover an area of approximately 1.2 kilometres. The bas-reliefs on the first level of Bayon depicted daily life of the Khmer people during the Angkor era while the bas-reliefs on the second level featured scenes from Hindu mythology and some battle scenes. Researchers have found the second level bas-reliefs to be inconsistent because Jayavarman VII introduced Buddhism to the Khmer empire, hence the Hindu mythology bas-reliefs were probably pre-dated several hundred years before Jayavarman’s rule or came into place a century later during Jayavarman VIII, a Hindu king.
