Lach Gates at Independence Square in Kiev is a monument built in 2001 to commemorate one of the Medieval Kyiv city gates. At the top is a sculpture of Archangel Michael, the city's symbol.
The gates were located in the former city's Polish quarter in the southeast side of Kyiv. According to Primary Chronicle, in 1240 the Lach Gates became the main fortification where Batu Khan concentrated his assault during the 1240 siege of Kyiv.
