Photographer's Note

The terrace of the Leper King carries on the theme of grandeur that characterises the building during Jayavarman VII's reign. It is located in the northwest corner of the Royal Square of Angkor Thom

There is an abundant amount of bas-reliefs here. They are not fine, delicate work like at Banteay Srei, but they are carved deep into the stone, more resembling statues instead of just reliefs.

The bas reliefs here tend to be of the mythical variety: comprising multiple-headed serpents, garudas, giants, gods, and women carvings.
