Site Size & Condition: Ancient Bridge Prasat Preah Khan Kampong Svay Spean Khang Kaeut (ប្រាសាទព្រះខ័នកំពង់ស្វាយស្ពានខាងកើត - Pronounced: Pra-sart P'rah Kanh Kuhm-pohng S'vay S'pien Karhng Ka'ult)

The east entrance causeway or 'bridge' to a large enclosed sandstone city Prasat Preah Khan (Kampong Svay).

The sandstone causeway that crosses over the encircling moat is adorned with carvings of a mythical bird. Flanking both sides of the causeway are traces of a naga balustrade. Oddly enough King Jayavarman VII didn't adopt the Gods and Demons pulling a naga scene like that of Prasat Banteay Chhmar, Prasat Preah Khan (Siem Reap) or Angkor Thom.

After crossing the moat, one enters the enclosed city through the three tower entrance gopura of Prasat Preah Khan Kampong Svay Khloung Thvear Khang Kaeut.
