 (JPG) Angkor Wat (939,474 bytes) ( 1,991 x 1,617 )
On the side of Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia stood the capital of the Angkor era that flourished between the 9th and 15th centuries. The vestige of its prosperity can be found in the Angkor ruins that are designated as a World Heritage site. Amongst the ruins, Angkor Wat is the most famous temple, built by Suryavarman II in the early 12th century to honor the Hindu god Vishnu. The temple occupies an area of 1.5 x 1.3 km. A 190m wide causeway encircles three galleries and five central shrines, towering as high as 65 m. On the ASTER image, you can recognize the causeway as a small black frame on the lower right of center. The simulated natural color image was acquired on February 17, 2004, is centered near 13.4 degrees North latitude, 103.9 degrees East longitude, and covers an area of 22.4 x 29.9 km.
