The researchers believe this may be the remnants of an ancient shrine.The researchers found evidence of roads, ponds, and mounds, which may have been used by workers of the temple.It has previously been assumed that enclosed spaces within Angkor Wat indicated cities or towns. Moats, walls, and other infrastructure kept each area contained.Researchers believe that these closed off urban areas differed significantly from the regions outside.Wooden structures found at the site suggest that Angkor Way may have enhanced its defense capabilities near the end of its operation. Construction of these structures is thought to be one of the last major builds to take place at the temple. (For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor:Gao Yinan,Wu Chengliang)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 8990198;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.We RecommendChinese beauty with sexiest bottom
