Snake on the Victory Gate

Fri 12th August 2011

We visited the famous Angkor Wat site today. It was alot bigger than we expected, with 5 temples in total. This statue was guarding the Victory gate, a grand entrance to one of the stunning historical temples.

It’s such a shame this statue is so badly damaged. It would have been an incredible site to see when entering along the bridge.

This menacing snake head towers before many statues of people holding it’s body on the lead up to the main gate. Considering some of these stone carvings have been around since the 11th century, its pretty incredble that  they are still standing!
