Ancient 'lost city' of the Khmer Empire discovered in Cambodia

An international group of scientists have identified the ancient 'lost city' of Cambodia for the first time using aerial laser scans and ground-based surveying to map Mahendraparvata or Mountain of Indra, King of the Gods. Mahendraparvata was one of the first capitals in the Khmer Empire that lasted from the 9th to 15th centuries AD and it has been dubbed the lost city, which was a mystery for decades.
