Unearthing Multiculturalism: A Treasure of Malaya's Past

In August 2023, a team of 11 researchers from USM began surveying a 1,200-year-old Buddhist stupa at Bukit Choras in the Bujang Valley of northwest Kedah, which has uncovered new evidence of the region's role as a thriving multicultral trading hub. We speak to Nasha Rodziadi Khaw, who is leading research efforts into the Bukit Choras archeological site in the Bujang Valley of Kedah, and what these sites show about our ancient past.
