This 5 storey pyramid temple is one of what remains of the Royal Palace. The guide didn't explain much when I asked where exactly was the Royal Palace. Maybe he's tired to explain any further or that we didn't hear him explain since were so exhausted and hungry from walking. Anyway here are the pics (lol).

Epilogue: After reading the souvenir coffeetable book about Angkor Wat, I found out its really quite difficult to find the Royal Palace because its no longer there (hahaha). The Palace according to the book was made of wood and together with all other the ancient non-religious structures they all have rotten by this day and age. What remains therefore are the religious structures made of stones and the walls.

Directions: Near the Elephant Terrace inside Angkor Thom

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
