The Victory Gate, Siem Reap

4.7
One of the five holy gateways into the ancient city, The Victory Gate was the one the king used to send his army into battle and then welcome his victorious warriors home. Built in the 12th century, its carved heads leading to the gate and carved faces at the head of the gate represent gods and demons facing in the four cardinal directions. The gate itself provides a good photo opportunity from the city walls, with plenty of scenery to fill the frame.

  • You can climb up to the side... great view!!!
  • My third favourite gate
  • Very similar to the other two gates in design, to the casual visitor, it is difficult to tell which gate is which. Anyway they are all beautiful, sadly the statues along the bridge are mostly damaged.
  • If you want to stay away from the crowd watching sunrise at AngkorWat, this gonna be a good choice!
  • An iconic part of the Angkor Wat complex
