In this work, we have experimentally studied the emission of radiation from a monopole source embedded in a photonic crystal. We have demonstrated the enhancement of radiation at the band edges and at the cavity modes including coupled cavity modes. Moreover, we have shown that the emission of radiation from a source depends on the group velocities of the modes and on the electric field intensities of the modes at the source location.
