      Reconstructed Candi???
    by AngMimi
 

Lembah Bujang is the oldest archaeological site in Negeri Kedah. This rich historical site covering a vast area of 400sq. km. and its an ancient Hindu Buddhist kingdom that ruled the region during the AD.

There are about 50 (or so) of Hindu and Buddhist temple, candi been excavated at varies site. Many artefacts and relics were found there and many of them you can see them in the Museum (Sorry, I think I have to visit lembah bujang again to take pictures, that time when I went there, I wear shoes with heels, so going up and coming down the hill to see the candi, oh dear, i already got no mood to take pictures, the leg pain, haha.. so wear comfortable shoes if ever you go there).

Those candi and temples are some of remain from the ruins found there and some candi are reconstructed because it was destroyed in 12th century when the 9th ruler of Kedah, the first sultan converted to Islam.. :-(
