New archeological discovery of a temple offers hope amidst loss in Kedah's Bujang Valley

IN a bittersweet twist of fate, Malaysia’s archaeological landscape has witnessed both loss and discovery. There was the tragedy of the destruction of the ancient Bujang Valley temple in Kedah in 2013, and now there’s a beacon of hope with the recent unearthing of a new temple in Bukit Choras, Kedah, by a team of researchers from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) headed by Dr Nasha Rodziadi Khaw.

The new find stands as a testament to our rich history and as a symbol of resilience, offering a chance for redemption and renewed commitment to preserving Malaysia’s cultural heritage. Believed to be contemporary with the now-damaged Bujang Valley complex, this discovery provides an opportunity to unlock further mysteries of our ancient civilisations.
