Named after the statue sitting on a 6m high platform, the identity of this is still debated. Some believe it to be King Yasovarman I, who supposedly died of leprosy, and it is from this that the terrace got its name.
However, historians have noted the 15th Century inscription on the statue itself which indicates the figure to be Yama, the God of death. This has lead to the belief that the terrace was used as a royal cremation site.
