The Terrace of the Elephants is a striking 300-metre-long, and two and a half-metre-high, and is ornamented with carved elephants and garudas. The north part of the wall contains a number of especially fine sculptures which include a five headed horse, and dancers and warriors. The wall faces east so the best lighting for photography before noon.
