Terrace of the Leper King ព្រះលានស្តេចគំលង់ – Preah Learn Sdech Kunlung – is a small temple north of Terrace of the Elephants and near the center of Angkor Thom. The temple has a terrace wall with deeply carved nagas, demons and other mythological beings. The so-called “Leper King” Terrace was built just north of the Elephant Terrace. It is named, or rather misnamed, for the seated statue which once occupied the platform and has now been moved to the National Museum in Phnom Penh to be protected.
