The Victory Gate was our first stop in our tour around Ancor Wat and it set the scene for the rest of the visit. You walk over the causeway that is guarded on both sides by these amazing carved warrior statues in various conditions. The ones in good condition demonstrated the intricate detail we were to see throughout the area. The actual gate itself is amazing and so much larger than the photos.

Not as restored as South Gate, but still very impressive. It is so much bigger when you walk through it - pictures make it look quite small. Had some interesting history and if you have a guide they have some stories to tell about it which is really fun.

One of the five gates of Angkor Thom, located on the eastern side. Very impressive ruin of Victory Gate of Angkor Thom.

Although restored, it is not as well-preserved as the one at South Gate - many bodies and most heads missing.

As per the other four gates providing entrance to Angkor Thom, Victory Gate is a stunning ancient marvel preceded by a moat with a stone causeway that is lined with a grand naga railing being pulled by 54 stone giants, Asuras and Devas, representing the constant tug of war between good and evil and the ‘Churning of the Sea of Milk’ from Hindu mythology. Few heads of the Asuras and Devas remain and this naga railing can be enjoyed in superior condition on the southern gate.

It is topped by a tall tower with faces of the Buddha carved on all the four sides. For a better view, you can climb atop the stairs on the sides of the gate. This way you can get very close to the huge face and have a bird’s eye view of the naga railings.

Your driver can wait for you on the other side if you want to walk thru.

Interesting statues on either side of the bridge. Some with restored heads. The Impact of time and erosion has made some a little denuded of limbs!

There are large faces visible on each side of the arch structure. Better on one side.

Quite a lot of traffic on the bridge - still a much used thoroughfare.

This is the fifth gate of "Angkor Thom", the capital city of the Khmer Empire built, in the 12th and 13th centuries, by the legendary builder King Jayavarman VII. Its name - "Victory Gate" - derives from the assumption that Khmer troops would leave or enter "Angkor Thom" through this magnificent triumphal arch. Right after the temples of "Thommanon" and "Chau Say Tevoda", a causeway with giant statues (although restored, it is not as well-preserved as the one at South Gate - many bodies and most heads missing) leads to "Victory Gate", built at the Eastern wall of "Angkor Thom" and in line to the "Royal Square", through the towers of "Prasat Suor Prat", the "Terrace of the Elephants", the ancient Hindu temple of "Phimeanakas" and the "Royal Palace". "Victory Gate" and its giant balaustrade is best viewed at mornings, when natural lighting is perfect for your pictures and, please, do not forget to ask your local guide or driver to stop at "Victory Gate", as they sometimes skip it, stopping only at the also magnificent and more complete "South Gate of Angkor Thom". Enjoy!

If you have a driver that is taking you around to the temples, he will more than likely take you thru the Gate. You can ask him to stop so you can take a closer look a the fine and impressive work all around the entrance. You will enter the gate by first passing all the heads lining the road. Your driver can wait for you on the other side if you wnt to walk thru or wait while you take pics. This is a world heritage site, so you are sure to want to view it. The gate is very narrow but wide enough for one vehicle at a time.

The victory gate seems like one of the entrances to the Angkor Wat park. The road through the gate has angels and demons each side and they are really impressive, especially to think they was made so long ago. Some of them are damaged unfortunately but it is definitely worth a visit

Very interesting Gate with impressive rows of statues along the causeway on the aproach to the gate. There is a small market set up here. This is also where you can walk up the hill to the castle to watch the sunset.

One of the very interesting gate entrances to Angkor Thom is the Gate of the Victory (east Gate) which is a popular way to exit the city after visiting Bayon, Baphuon and Phimeanakas temples and making way east to other interesting temple runs in the Angkor Ancheological Park such as Ta Keo to the east.

What you will see here is a multi-faced tower gate which you will drive through on tuk-tuk of vehicle. You can walk through this gate entrance as well. On the outside of the gate, you'll find a row of demons and a row of gods on the two sides of a causeway crossing the canal that surrounds the Angkor Thom complex.

The gate and statues are not in as good of condition as the more famous South Gate. However, there are far fewer tourists here so it may be worth your time to stop and have a look around here after spending time in Angkor Thom. Otherwise, if you are short on time, best to focus your efforts on the South Gate instead given its better condition.
