TERRACE OF THE LEPER KING

 

The terrace of the Leper King in Siem Reap - Angkor in Cambodia is one of the many mysteries of Angkor. This terrace of the Leper King is named after a small asexual statue that is believed to be the statue of King Yasovarman who died of leprosy. But the other explanation is that this statue would represent Yama, the god of the dead, and the terrace of the Leper King was actually a royal crematorium. On the side of the terrace, a long narrow trench and a quantity of beautiful carvings and well preserved, representing Apsaras, geniuses and monsters, quantity of divinities, a surprising freshness and beauty. This very long corridor, has been completely restored, each sculpture dismantled and replaced on the new walls. A must see.
