The Terrace of the Leper King..

You can see this beautifully detailed structure right alongside the Terrace of the Elephants, Angkor Park in Siem Reap. Accessible by main road, but you know a lot of people miss this, I’m one of them. In the few times I’ve been there, I would skip this place thinking its the same structure as the Terrace of the Elephants and besides its just too hot to go along and stroll there.

I’m so wrong. It stunning and very detailed.┬áIt was built at end of the 12th century by king Jayavarman VII and it features incredibly ornate bas reliefs.
