Caption

Angkor Wat temple, Cambodia, as seen by the Ikonos satellite. The city of Angkor was the ancient capital of the Khmer Empire. Angkor Wat was built between 1113 and 1150 AD by Suryavarman II as a temple to the Hindu god Vishnu. The buildings in the centre of the image consist of 5 towers, each shaped to represent the peaks of Mount Meru. Surrounding the complex is a 174-metre-wide moat. The site was abandoned sometime in the 15th Century. The Ikonos satellite orbits at 681 kilometres and was the first commercial satellite to take images at one-metre resolution. Image taken on 12 April 2004.
