On the porch near Elephant Terrace, there is a large ruined lotus sculpture, which was built after Bayon temple. This sculpture has one and half meter of height and three meters in diameter, assembled from 69 small pieces of sandstone and laterite pedestal. Since mid-2016, conservative team of APSARA has begun restoration of this lotus sculpture and planned to complete in August 2017.

Mr. Mao Sokny, the architect, who leads the restoration work of this sculpture said that in 1995, this sculpture was restored once already by French experts. For this time, the restoration work is not only under the experts of APSARA, but also have a monitor and recommends from the experts of ICC Angkor. So far, we have completed the restoration about 70% by preparing the foundation of the first layer of lotus sculpture and we are ongoing preparation the second layer and the top slightly.
