Monument Historic Site
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.

Where to stay in Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers attractive accommodations on every budget. Inexpensive family-run guesthouses provide clean, private rooms with access to the host's wealth of information. Hostels catering to backpackers cluster around the old market squares. Four- and five-star resorts welcome guests to retreat from the city into sleek modern interiors or rustic village havens, while mid-range hotels with sparkling pools fill in the spectrum. All can be booked online in advance, but with the abundant options at hand you shouldn't have much trouble finding a room upon arrival.

  • Very accessible, you can literally drive or walk through it. Be careful of traffic when taking photographs. Ask you driver to stop. There is a path off to one side that lest you walk up the embankment...  more »
  • You dont really visit this but more drive through it and it is very impressive. We stopped to have a better look at the carvings. There are a number of gates around the area.  more »

  • 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.
  • An iconic part of the Angkor Wat complex
  • Victory gate is quieter also if less magnificent than south gate, but always nice
  • There are five gates into Angkor Thom compound. This is the gate that King's return victorious army go through.
  • I was here.. Spectacular view
