Possibly once an royal crematorium and hiding marvellously crisp carvings within its concentric walls, the Terrace of the Leper King is not to be missed. Rather less than impressive from almost every direction, it is the hidden bas-reliefs within the terrace walls that are so worthy of a visit. Covered up for centuries, these inner walls have been painstakingly restored to their former glory and look as if they have only just been carved. Here there is an exquisite collection of infinitely varied figures of every kind - don't miss these. The original headless statue atop the terrace is now in the National Museum at Phnom Penh, but a replica now sits in its place, watched over by a peaceful Buddha figure behind.
