ANGKOR THOMAngkor Thom and the ruins of the last great capital of the Khmer are entered by way of an impressive causeway that contains an array of gigantic statues. This 'giants' causeway' consists of a hundred and eight mythical beings and divine spirits which, according to leading archaeologists, were created toward the end of the 12th century.The main features of the royal palace were built around a hundred and fifty years prior to the remaining construction of Angkor Thom by Suryavarman The First. In subsequent years the centre of the palace complex was the Phimeanakas, the Aerial Palace, that was mostly used for important royal occasions. The royal palace is surrounded by several terraces such as the Elephant Terrace famous for its exquisite decoration.The magnificent stonemasonry is just one of the reasons that Angkor Thom is one of the greatest cultural heritage sights in Cambodia.
