The Horse Gate of Vaes Dothrak,[1] also simply called the horse gate,[2] 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.[1]
