Terrace of the Leper King, Siem Reap
(3.8/5 based on 360+ 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.
