Thousands of tourists enter the Angkor Wat Temple grounds every day from the Western Gate. So it is very difficult to get a photo of it from that side without a large crowd of people in the foreground. This gallery is of the Eastern Gate which is almost forgotten and gets a relatively small amount of visitors because you have to walk a distance through a beautiful park.
