  Terrace of the Elephants
by cheezecake_deli
 
 

The 350-metre-long Terrace of the Elephants, named for the elephant carvings on its eastern side, was used by Jayavarman VII as a platform from which to view his victorious returning army and to perform public ceremonies. It was originally attached to the palace of Phimeanakas, of which only a few ruins remain. Most of what remains are the foundation platforms of the complex.

Address: Angkor Archaeological Park
Directions: North of Siem Reap town.

Review Helpfulness: 3 out of 5 stars
