The Terrace of the Elephants is part of the walled city of Angkor Thom, The terrace is named for the carvings of elephants on its eastern face. The 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. The middle section of the retaining wall is decorated with life size garuda and lions; towards either end are the two parts of the famous parade of elephants complete with their Khmer mahouts.
