Bakan is the principal sanctuary of Angkor Wat. It is the highest point of the central tower.
I am so thankful to get the Bakan Pass. Standing Atop it brought my imagination to the 12th century when Jayavarman VII and his wife, Jayarajadevi stood at this place after defeat the Champ.
Maybe at that time he found the city of Angkor in disorder because of the war, but then he created a grand program of construction to alleviate the suffering of his people.
Several years later, maybe he stood at this place again with his wife, Indradevi, smiling while looked at the new city of Angkor.
