  • First mural road finished in “Kingdom of Ginseng”

    A new mural road has been completed in mountainous Nam Tra My district in central Quang Nam province. The road is some 600 meters long and features 32 works, each 2.5 meters in height and 5 meters in width, depicting the beautiful local scenery, daily life, traditional songs and dance of local ethnic minority groups, and, especially, images of the district’s famous Ngoc Linh ginseng. The murals were painted by teachers and students at schools in the district to call for forest and environmental protection and the preservation and development of Ngoc Linh ginseng. According to local ginseng experts, the stems and roots of Ngoc Linh ginseng contain 52 saponins (the main component of ginseng, with the more saponins the better). Of the 52 saponins, 26 are commonly found in Korean, American, and Japanese ginseng, while the other 26 have only just been discovered, making it one of the world’s rarest ginseng.

  • My Son Sanctuary’s Sanskrit texts to be translated

    My Son Sanctuary’s Sanskrit texts to be translated

    Sanskrit texts inscribed on relics at My Son Sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in central Quang Nam province, will be translated into Vietnamese and English with the assistance of Indian experts. The move is expected to reveal more about the cultural, historical, religious and architectural values of the towers within the complex. There are currently 31 steles with Sanskrit texts carved into bricks and stones, the main materials used in the architecture at My Son. The biggest challenge in the translation work is that many of the steles are broken and some fragments have been lost. In addition to translating the inscribed texts, the Indian experts are also helping Vietnam restore the relics as part of a project funded by the Indian Government from 2016 to 2021.
