Lach Gates at Independence Square in Kyiv is a monument built in 2001 to commemorate one of the Medieval Kyiv city gates. At the top is a sculpture of Archangel Michael which is 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.

Lach gates were one of three known gates of the Medieval Kyiv, the others being the Golden Gate and the Jewish Gates.
