This photo was taken from the Elephant Terrance at Angkor Thom attached to the palace of Phimeanakas. It was from this vantage point that King Jayavarman VII watched his armies assemble, held court, and conducted public ceremonies. Named for the elephant carvings along the east side, we watched the sun rise over the jungle as a lone tuk-tuk proceeded at a leisurely pace along the road that parallels the terrace.
