Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The 350m-long Terrace of Elephants was once used as a stand for Jayavarman VII to inspect his troops as they marched into Angkor Thom from the Victory Gate. Carvings of elephants are found on both ends of the terrace while the middle section is decorated with life-sized carvings of garudas and lions.

The terrace is about 350 metres long and said to be the platform from which the Angkor king would view his victorious army. The carvings of garudas and elephants are not to be missed!

Klang, Malaysia

The Terrace of Elephants is part of the walled city of Angkor Thom, a ruined temple complex in Cambodia. The terrace was used by Angkor's king Jayavarman VII as a platform from which to view his victorious returning army.
