Angkor Thom, West Gate.

The West Gate of Angkor Thom is probably the least used gate of the Angkor Thom complex in Cambodia but well worth the visit. I had my tuk-tuk driver drop me at the South gate then walked the 3km along the path to the West Gate which was a wonderful walk and a great way to arrive at the West Gate. As I approached the West Gate along the wooded path the large carved stone heads of the gate eventually came into view through the trees. It was late afternoon and with the soft, diffused light reflecting off the stone edifices this created an almost mythical, fantasy world into which I had arrived.
