Central Tower Framed in a Doorway

As you enter the Terrace of Honor there is a brief moment when the central tower is framed by its doorway. This pavilion, as all the others at Angkor Wat, is totally covered by exquisite carvings. Notice the carved pillars in the windows beside the doorway. It is said that there is as much stone here as in the pyramid of Cheops in Egypt!
