This terrace was situated at the end of the Elephant terrace and this temple has double walls with many carving you can see, but on the top it has only the leper king statue over there.

another wall of sculptures near Angkor Wat and adjacent to Elephant Terrace( where the sculptures are more recognisable).Be driven by it on your way to/from Angkor Wat (which is the great site in this area).

Located in The Royal Palace area in Angkor Thom next to Terrace of Elephants. Nothing much to see and few visitors.

Its not for a long sight seeing trip. What you can do is just alot about 15 minutes of your time and take a lot of photos then leave. Worth the extra trip

Takes 15 mins. Right at north end of the Elephant Terrace (I mistook it as part of the Elephant Terrace). Very interesting secret "tunnel" of stone carvings. The headless leper figure is gone and replaced with new sitting statue.
