  Spean Neak

 

Cambodia

In front of each of the gates of Angkor Thom (fig.), in the approach to the city, are naga-bridges, known in Khmer as Spean Neak, that cross the moat and have balustrades displaying the Churning of the Ocean of Milk by the gods and the asuras. This one is at the South Gate.
