Introduction

Photo not found

Within the Angkor Temple complex, this 350m long terrace is topped with royal war elephants carrying hunters and warriors. It also depicts tiger's beneath the elephants, clawing at their feet.

Originally, the terrace would have been used as a reception hall for parties and such, but also as a viewing platform. From this platform royal guests could watch performances and processions.
