    Lotus "Naga Bridge" should be constructed at Angkor Wat period, or in the 12th century A.D.

    "Naga Bridge" is a cross-shaped platform, and joins "Laterite Path" to stairway to lead to "Main Sanctuary". The rails are carved in the shape of a serpent with five heads which faces in all directions. Motifs of the Naga's crowns are identical with those seen at Angkor Wat.

    At the center of the platform, it bears carvings of a lotus with eight petals, and to be protected by a fence now.
