This is a must see while going to all the temples. The size and scope are amazing. It is very accessible and having a good guide helps understand.

Baphuon Temple is located nearby to Bayon Temple. This is another great temple but then, be ready to climb up the steep staircase to get to the top. It is worth going up to the top as the view from the top is spectacular. Just...More

Baphuon temple is lovely and well worth a visit. You can climb up the stairs to the top. There is a reclining Buddha in the stonework at the side.

This is one of the temples you can climb to the top on. The stairs are steep so be careful. Worth the climbing. Among my favourite top 10 temples and located inside Angkor Thom area.

Some of the trees that intertwined with the ruins, strangling the gates are ancient figs. I'm not suggesting that these are the trees you observed but it might not be a bad place to start.
