More carvings. Our guide suggested this stop while visiting Bayon Temple. It is only a few hundred feet from the Terrace of the Elephants. You can visit both in a short time from one parking place.

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

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
