Terrace of the Leper King, Siem Reap

(3.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Covered with intricate carvings, Terrace of the Leper King represents Yama, the Hindu god of death and last judgment. Notice the god's wide smile and nudity, both unusual for Cambodian art. Built by a 12th-century ruler of the Khmer Empire, the terrace may have served as a royal cremation site, which explains the presence of Yama. Put Terrace of the Leper King on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Siem Reap itinerary maker.

  • Forms part of the Angkor Thom complex and worth a view. The carvings are protected behind another wall but the detailing is just fantastic and well preserved.
