The Terrace of the Elephants is part of the walled city of Angkor Thom, a ruined temple complex in Cambodia. The terrace was used by Angkor's king Jayavarman VII as a platform from which to view his victorious returning army. It was attached to the palace of Phimeanakas of which only a few ruins remain. Most of the original structure was made of organic material and has long since disappeared. Most of what remains are the foundation platforms of the complex. The terrace is named for the carvings of elephants on its eastern face.The small platform that is the Terrace of the Leper King dates back from the late 12th century. The exact function of this terrace, which appears to be an extension of the Terrace of the Elephants, is not clear. It was probably used either for royal receptions or cremations.
