Hard to imagine so many years ago, Cambodia already have judged to determine who committed a crime, have a legal system in place to resolve big and small things.

Terrace of the Leper King is just past the Terrace of the Elephants. Interesting carvings. It is part of Angkor Thom.

Facing the terrace of the elephants, the terrace of the Leper King is on the right. You enter a kind of labyrinth where the walls are full of superb carvings. The visit is quite quick, as you can enter only one by one, you just...More

Not much to talk about except a small maze with statues carved out on both sides. The stone is red in color unlike the black for most of the structures. That's all folks.

One of the temples in the Angkor Thom complex. If you like ruins, you will LOVE this one which will make you feel like a modern day Indiana Jones. The wall with carvings of the king's mistresses is EXTRAORDINARY. Don't miss it!
