Buddhist occult temple complex.
The temple of the Leper King is remarkable for its simple geometry and overall harmony of its composition. It's full of intricately decorated columns and magnificent statues scattered across its territory.
The complex got its name after the statue of the Leper King which decorates its central tower. The statue has four dreadful faces facing four directions so it looks after you no matter where you're going. The name of the king is shrouded in mystery. Perhaps it was his illness that caused him to build numerous hospitals and favour studies of medicine. However it apparently didn't help him at all as he turned towards dark forces. Then something dreadful has happened. The darkness engulfed this place like a giant avalanche. It was the king's fault. None of the locals could escape the darkness. Such was the price for the king's life, though you can hardly call him living now.
Those who used to populate this place disappeared without a trace. Jungle did a good work to cover the lost city and hide it away from the eyes of the world. Time and jungle didn't spare anything but the temple and the palace. You'd get blown away by the atmosphere of this place and its astonishing architecture. You might think that this place is just a fantasy, but it was created from a real-life prototype.
Well, there is another version of the story according to which the temple got its name after moss that covers the central statue making it look like it suffers from leprosy. It's up to you which story to believe!
