Stretching over some 400 km2, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations. UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging programme to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.

In the morning visiting Angkor Thom area:

You will visit some highlight architectures of Angkor Thom area such as: the impressive Bayon Temple, Royal Enclosures, The Terrace of the Elephants, The Terrace of the Leper King, Phimeanakas Temple,  Ta Prohm Temple…

Angkor Thom is a temples complex at Angkor, located in Siem Reap City, present-day Cambodia which lies on the west bank of the Siem Reap River, a tributary of Tonle Sap, about a quarter of a mile from the river. The south gate of Angkor Thom is 7.2 km north of Siem Reap City, and 1.7 km north of the entrance to Angkor Wat. It was the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer empire. It was established in the late twelfth century by King Jayavarman VII.

The Bayon Temple was built in the late 12th or early 13th century as the official state temple of King Jayavarman VII, the Bayon stands at the centre of Angkor Thom. The Bayon's most distinctive feature is the multitude of serene and smiling stone faces on the many towers which jut out from the upper terrace and cluster around its central peak. The temple is known also for two impressive sets of bas-reliefs, which present an unusual combination of mythological, historical, and mundane scenes.

The Terrace of the Elephants is part of the walled city of Angkor Thom. The terrace was used by Angkor's king Jayavarman VII as a platform from which to view his victorious returning army. The terrace is named for the carvings of elephants on its eastern face. The 350m-long 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. It has five outworks extending towards the Central Square-three in the centre and one at each end. 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.

The Terrace of the Leper King is located in the northwest corner of the Royal Square of Angkor Thom. It was built in the Bayon style under Jayavarman VII, though its modern name derives from a 15th-century sculpture discovered at the site.

Phimeanakas Temple (celestial temple) is a Hindu temple in the Khleang style, built at the end of the 10th century, during the reign of Rajendravarman II (from 941-968), then completed by Suryavarman II in the shape of a three tier pyramid as a Hindu temple. On top of the pyramid there was a tower, while on the edge of top platform there are galleries. Phimeanakas is located inside the walled enclosure of the Royal Palace of Angkor Thom north of Baphuon Temple. The tower must originally have been crowned with a golden pinnacle, as Zhou Daguan described it in his report. According to legend, the king spent the first watch of every night with a woman thought to represent a Nāga in the tower, during that time, not even the queen was permitted to intrude. Only in the second watch the king returned to his palace with the queen. If the naga who was the supreme land owner of Khmer land did not show up for a night, the king's day would be numbered, if the king did not show up, calamity would strike his land.

Ta Prohm Temple was built in the late 12th and early 13th centuries and originally called Rajavihara. Located approximately one kilometre east of Angkor Thom and on the southern edge of the East Baray, it was founded by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm is in much the same condition in which it was found: the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples with visitors. UNESCO inscribed Ta Prohm Temple on the World Heritage List in 1992. Today, it is one of the most visited complexes in Cambodia’s Angkor region. There are enormous Fig Trees and gigantic Creepers which embraces themselves in the stone foundations of the structure giving the impression of Ta Prohm Temples.

It is the largest religious monument in the world, on a site measuring 162.6 hectares (1,626,000 m2; 402 acres).

They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations. UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging programme to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.

You will visit some highlight architectures of Angkor Thom area such as: the impressive Bayon Temple, Royal Enclosures, The Terrace of the Elephants, The Terrace of the Leper King, Phimeanakas Temple,  Ta Prohm Temple…

Angkor Thom is a temples complex at Angkor, located in Siem Reap City, present-day Cambodia which lies on the west bank of the Siem Reap River, a tributary of Tonle Sap, about a quarter of a mile from the river. The south gate of Angkor Thom is 7.2 km north of Siem Reap City, and 1.7 km north of the entrance to Angkor Wat. It was the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer empire. It was established in the late twelfth century by King Jayavarman VII.

The Bayon Temple was built in the late 12th or early 13th century as the official state temple of King Jayavarman VII, the Bayon stands at the centre of Angkor Thom. The Bayon's most distinctive feature is the multitude of serene and smiling stone faces on the many towers which jut out from the upper terrace and cluster around its central peak. The temple is known also for two impressive sets of bas-reliefs, which present an unusual combination of mythological, historical, and mundane scenes.

The Terrace of the Elephants is part of the walled city of Angkor Thom. The terrace was used by Angkor's king Jayavarman VII as a platform from which to view his victorious returning army. The terrace is named for the carvings of elephants on its eastern face. The 350m-long 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. It has five outworks extending towards the Central Square-three in the centre and one at each end. 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.

The Terrace of the Leper King is located in the northwest corner of the Royal Square of Angkor Thom. It was built in the Bayon style under Jayavarman VII, though its modern name derives from a 15th-century sculpture discovered at the site.

Phimeanakas Temple (celestial temple) is a Hindu temple in the Khleang style, built at the end of the 10th century, during the reign of Rajendravarman II (from 941-968), then completed by Suryavarman II in the shape of a three tier pyramid as a Hindu temple. On top of the pyramid there was a tower, while on the edge of top platform there are galleries. Phimeanakas is located inside the walled enclosure of the Royal Palace of Angkor Thom north of Baphuon Temple. The tower must originally have been crowned with a golden pinnacle, as Zhou Daguan described it in his report. According to legend, the king spent the first watch of every night with a woman thought to represent a Nāga in the tower, during that time, not even the queen was permitted to intrude. Only in the second watch the king returned to his palace with the queen. If the naga who was the supreme land owner of Khmer land did not show up for a night, the king's day would be numbered, if the king did not show up, calamity would strike his land.

Ta Prohm Temple was built in the late 12th and early 13th centuries and originally called Rajavihara. Located approximately one kilometre east of Angkor Thom and on the southern edge of the East Baray, it was founded by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm is in much the same condition in which it was found: the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples with visitors. UNESCO inscribed Ta Prohm Temple on the World Heritage List in 1992. Today, it is one of the most visited complexes in Cambodia’s Angkor region. There are enormous Fig Trees and gigantic Creepers which embraces themselves in the stone foundations of the structure giving the impression of Ta Prohm Temples.

It is the largest religious monument in the world, on a site measuring 162.6 hectares (1,626,000 m2; 402 acres).
