This terrace is located near Bayon temple and is well preserved and fairly intact. Well known for its illustrative displays of elephants carved into the stone. Well worth the time to visit.

Another amazing place that is a must - the terrace of elephants, used by the Khmer kings. The terrace is 350m long and shows the esteem that these marvellous creatures once held

I went in early December and it was hot. I needed an electric fan! But the Khmer people were wearing windbreakers and jackets... we tourists were dressed in summer gear. Bring a hat and sunglasses!
