After visting Angkor wat, Bayon and Baphuon temples, on the way to visit Ta Keo, visited Terrace of the Leper King. It is actually a on the way attraction compared to other attractions in Angkor. Can spent a short time here. Near by attraction is...More
As part of a day tour we visited Angkor Thom where you will find Elephant Terrace and Leper King Terrace next to each other. Compared to other sites in the area this is not that great, but worth a short stop. This is also on...More
If you are in Angkor Thom, as you should be, then stop by and see it. Worth seeing the walk and walking around it. Doesn’t
take much time, but worth the visit. The carvings are intricate and with the quick look.
I don't really like the name, but the place is great. I imagine kings and nobles gathering there for celebrations or even some banquets. Even tourist guides said otherwise, my imagination says other things!
There is a second row of carvings behind the front wall, which are in excellent condition.
The carvings are superb and intricate.
Watch for the deterioration of the King. He starts fully clothed adorned with jewelry and gradually loses his clothes and gets spots as...More

The Terrace of the Leper King is at the end of the Elephant Terrace (see my review), at the NW corner of the Royal Square (Angkor Thom). View the splendid carvings here of gods, divas, Garuda and animals including an elephant, rhinoceros, ducks and fish....More
Not really much to it, just a flat terrace, with elephant trunks. Blazing hot sun. The highlight however, is the icecream vendor - sells durian/taro/mango/coconut flavored icecream on a stick which i would give anything to have again. Such fresh fruity flavors in the hot...More
Ok i quite liked this as there is a sort of maze that was built to guide you to this statue, this was completely overgrown and when they cleared the area they noticed the statue had a deformed hand hence the name leper king

Hello. I got a car and driver at no additional charge with my hotel room, but I can offer some advice. It will probably cost less than you would expect, esp if you have hired a car and driver in Europe. I think I saw $30-40 per day in guidebooks. You will only get a car and driver -- not a guide. The driver will speak enough English to get you around. The driver is not a guide. He is not permitted to join you inside any of the temples. Hope this helps.
