Excavating a late-Angkorian Buddhist terrace

Terrace-GT83-300x200

This terrace is unusual because it is built on top of an earthen mound which rises six metres above the flood plain, and is located at the corner of two huge embankments (one of which is the East Baray). This leads us to speculate it may have had another function prior to the construction of the terrace.
