Adjacent to the Leper King Terrace, opposite the Zodiac Pagoda, behind is the Bafang Temple. Everything is elephant-themed. You can see the well-preserved elephant reliefs. The trunk is vivid and long, but a little narrow. It is hard to imagine the scene of fighting elephants.
The Battle Elephant Platform is a relatively low-profile attraction in Angkor Wat, but as long as you see it, you can’t help but want to take a photo with it. Comparing more than a dozen stone elephants seems to be too cool. I can’t wait to ride on it to take pictures. Hot
The Battle Elephant Platform is the platform for the King’s military parade, facing the road leading to the Victory Gate. The soldiers who returned triumphantly from the Victory Gate are here to receive the King’s review. It forms a whole building with Leiwang Terrace and Bafang Temple. It was built by King Jayavarman VII at the end of the 12th century. There are many exquisite carvings on its outer wall, which are worth watching carefully.
Many people come here to focus on his past and past, how spectacular and open it was thousands of years ago. But I came here to focus on the elephants and sculptures under each step. What they hold up is not just a step, but an era, a dynasty, a history and civilization that we will never forget. Although this era and civilization are far away from us, he has passed it on from generation to generation with this unique carving method.
Douxiangtai was built at the end of the 12th century. The length of the platform is about 330 meters. There is a pillar carved with elephant trunk at the entrance of the stairs to the southern part of the Douxiangtai. The elephant trunk is wrapped around the lotus on the water. The walls of the platform are carved with a D hunting scene and elephants and other pictures, which are lifelike. The elephant stand is an ancient military parade. The king of Angkor stood on the elephant stand for inspection and held various public ceremonies. Horse teams, motorcades, and troops walked across the square. Behind the Douxiangtai is the imperial palace, and it is also the place where ministers visited the king's pilgrimage. #我最喜欢呢度个景#Large green grassland #surrounded by big trees #eyes so comfortable #the emperor’s posture
