Angkor Thom, a city-fortress of perfect proportions designed at the height of Angkor's artistic daring. This moated square is 6 times larger than Angkor Wat. A celestial city modeled on Hindu cosmology, the jewel of this immense compound of temples and palaces is the temple of Bayon (center), with its sensational, towering stone faces and epic sculpture galleries. Above the center are the Terrace of the Leper King and the Terrace of the Elephants.
