In the west wing of the south gallery of the third (outer) enclosure is a parade of kings, 98 m long, which shows not mythological but historical events. 18 Khmer kings with their retinues and troops are portrayed. Unusually, numerous inscriptions in Old Khmer give information on the people, as well as the posthumous names of the kings in Sanskrit. 18 Khmer kings are portrayed.
