I enjoyed this terrace more for how archaeologists managed to preserve and show both sets of terraces than anything else. However there are quite a few wonderful carving on both the inside terrace and outside terrace. It's a short visit and if you have time...More

Not much to be seen except the statue of the Leper King. Can see the remnants of the terrace walls. Not many visitors and the place is not well maintained too

Next door to the elephant terrace. Do read up about it and how it got the name before visiting. Watch for snakes, not likely..... but.

Nothing much to see or be in awe of . The restoration work is patchy and some parts missing. You need to go through the back of this terrace to get into the shops and also the new buddha temple.
