Standing on the central platform between the garuda and a lion, I imagine myself as a king waiting for the return of my victorious army. This place could have been full of life, with a powerful king tall on its throne and an army roaring like thunder as they celebrate victory.
This long platform or terrace was said to have been lined with pavillions, perhaps for the important guests of the king. I wish I have time machine so I can travel back in time. This terrace is so enchanting. And these elephants carved on the base prove how their role used to be important.
