The Terrace of the Elephants is part of the walled city of Angkor Thom, a ruined temple complex at Angkor Historical Park. The terrace was used by Angkor's king Jayavarman VII as a platform from which to view his victorious returning army. Most of the original structure was made of wood 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.
