The Terrace of the Leper King is something of a misnomer, for there was no king with leprosey, but rather the silly dancing images are from Hindu mythology. Further excavations have found various alterations and extensions of these terraces. More information can be found at the link below. Wandering in this area too, a visitors can find the north palace entrance, as shown here, before returning to the main road in Angkor Thum.
