Kolkata, June 26: A weeklong photo exhibition showcasing the rich Indian cultural heritage of the ancient Cham dynasty, a Hindu kingdom, in Vietnam has been attracting people here.




Titled "Traces of Indian Culture in Vietnam" the exhibition displays 54 photographs of deities, temples built in Central Vietnam during the centuries old Cham Dynasty rule.

"The photographs are of various Hindu deities excavated from time to time from the ruins of the Cham dynasty temples," said Geetesh Sharma, the man behind the lens.

The Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) organised exhibition at the city's Bengal Art Gallery was launched Monday. The Council is also planning to hold a similar exhibition in Shillong later.

The Cham dynasty was a Hindu kingdom that controlled what is now central Vietnam from approximately the 7th century through to 1832.
