Site Size & Condition:Gate Angkor Thom Khloung Thvear Chey (អង្គរធំខ្លោងទ្វារជ័យ - Pronounced: Angkor Tom K'lowng T'vear Jei)

Is the 5th gate of Angkor Thom and is aligned with the Royal Palace and Elephant Terrace rather than any of the cardinal points. It is also known as the Victory Gate as it is presumed that returning, successful armies would march through this entrance for a victory parade in front of the king, from his vantage point on the Terrace.

This particularly picturesque gate is in good condition and is at present on the main route between Angkor Thom to Prasat Thommanon, Prasat Chau Say Tevoda and Prasat Ta Keo (Siem Reap). (For architectural details please see the North gate, Angkor Thom Khloung Thvear Ta Nok.

Inscription K.1018 is apparently housed at the National Museum of Cambodia.
