Elephants Terrace from Angkor Thom, Cambodia

The Terrace of the Elephants is part of the walled city of Angkor Thom, a ruined temple complex in Cambodia.

Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Khmer Empire, was a fortified city enclosing residences of priest, officials of the palace and military, as well as buildings for administering the kingdom. The 350m-long Terrace of Elephants was used as a giant reviewing stand for public ceremonies and served as a base for the king's grand audience hall.

1st anniversary of the inscription of the Temple of Preah Vihear on the World Heritage List (UNESCO), July 7, 2008 – July 7, 2009.
