Vietnam. I wrote about thisUNESCO World Heritage Sitein Chapter 10 of Tattoo. French archeologists uncovered this valley of temples in the 1800s. The temples at My Son were mostly built by the Chams circa 600-1200. This site raises so many questions. Perhaps Sherlock Holmes could give us more answers. But how to get word to the ghost of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle?
How is it these temples still remain in this valley shrouded in the mist?
What factors led to the Chams’ acceptance of different religions?
What accounts for the many headless statues that are otherwise in pristine condition?
Why does the old brick stay brown while the new brick, used in renovations, turns black?
