"Terrace of the Leper King III" Angkor Thom Tip by leffe3

Angkor Thom, Angkor Wat: 121 reviews and 276 photos

The four tiers of aspara here are incredible. They are more than 700 years old but many are extremely well preserved, likely to be a result of them having been covered over by the front wall.

Extraordinary that these figures were simply covered over. It is believed that this was undertaken to simply extend the length of the platform which is believed to have held a wooden structure on the top.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
