Mahisasuramardini of Lembah Bujang (Bujang Valley Civilisation)

This ancient granite deity which is said to be that of Goddess Mahisasuramardini is 66 cm high and it was discovered at site number 4 of the Bujang Valley.

The actual temple which housed this granite carving may be lost forever but thanks to archeology we now have knowledge of its location. At least future generations will be aware of this ancient temple which once existed.
