Caption: Angkor. Coloured radar image of Angkor, site of the ancient capital of the Khmer Empire in Cambodia. The large black rectangle (left) is an ancient reservoir. Just right of this is a large pale blue square feature, an enclosure called Angkor Thom. Built in the 10th to 12th century, it contained royal palaces, temples dedicated to the Hindu gods and shrines associated with Theravada Buddhism. The smaller square beneath this is the great temple of Angkor Wat. The site was abandoned some time in the 15th century. The data for this image were gathered by the Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C (SIR-C) during Shuttle Mission STS-68 on 30 September 1994.
