Khett Siem Reab Things to Do: 559 reviews and 1,380 photos


There are 5 entrances to Angkor Thom. The south gateway looks over a moat. Most visitors enter via this causeway which is flanked by 54 gods on the left and 54 demons on the right. The gods and demons are pulling giant Nagas (snakes).
The entrance gate itself is 20m high and features four faces of the Bodhivista. At the base of the gateway can be seen the trunks of elephants.
