Horse Gate of Vaes Dothrak
The Horse Gate of Vaes Dothrak, also simply called the horse gate, is the entrance to the city of Vaes Dothrak in the Dothraki sea. It is not a true gate, as there are no gates or walls in the city. Instead, it is named for two gigantic bronze stallions whose hooves meet a hundred feet above the roadway to form a pointed arch. The Horse Gate can be seen from a distance, framing the great purple mountain which the Dothraki name the Mother of Mountains. The path beneath the horse gate is the godsway, where monuments and holy symbols from a hundred different religions line both sides, showing the vast range and power of the Dothraki's conquests.
