Elephants Terrace

End of 12th century Jayavarman VII. The foundation platform of the royal audience hall, described by Chou Ta-Kuan in 1296 “In the counsel hall, the window frames are of gold: to the left and right are square pillars bearing forty or firty mirrors, below them are elephants”. “Here, on the central perron amidst the ringing of conches, when the golden curtain was drawn aside by two servants, the king of Angkor, seated on a lion skin, appeared before his prostrated subjects.” – G.P. Groslier
