  The Naga level 3 Angkor by ukirsari

This relief can be found on the top of level 3, Angkor Wat. Again, Naga becomes a symbol of water and the king make a sacred pledge with the snake --this Naga reflecting God of Water. The main reason why the kings of Khmer Empire put Angkor Wat here is about the place is nearby waters: Boeng Tonle Sap [Lake Tonle Sap], Siem Reap River and the 'baray' [artificial drainage of ancient Khmer].
