Angkor Thom Spean Tonle Om
|Alternative name||Angkor Thom South Gate Bridge, Angkor Thom South Gate Causeway|
|Part of||Yasodharapura III, Angkor Thom, Angkor|
|District||Siem Reap Municipality|
|Founded||Late 12th Century|
The causeway spans across Angkor Thom's moat measuring approximately 100m and is flanked on both sides with demons and gods pulling on a 9 headed naga.
The symbolism is still debated and while there's an obvious connection with the Churning of the Sea of Milk creation myth, 'Rainbow Bridges' are also considered to represent the connection between the world of man (outside the walls) and the realm of the gods, (inside). The north gate is one of the best-preserved and far less busy than the popular south one.
