TERRACE OF THE ELEPHANTS
An Imperial hunts in the somber forests of the realm. There are formidable elephants... The forest in which they travel in impenetrable to all but tiny creatures, able to squeeze their smallness between the fissures of the undergrowth, and to the biggest animals, which crush chasms for their passage in the virgin vegetation.
The elephants are ridden
by servants and princes, and tread as quietly as if they were on an excursive
promenade. The steps of even length have no respect for any obstacle.
Terrace of the elephants is located in the Royal Square of Angkor Thom.
Accessible entry from the road at the east. It was built at the end of the 12th century, dedicated to Buddhist and replica to Bayon style of art.
