13/25.-Nha Trang, Long Son Pagoda, detail


In the picture you can see a relief on one of the walls that surround the temple of Long Son. At the top of the picture you can see a Swastika. This is one of the oldest symbols in human history. It has been used almost everywhere in the world, from Sumerians, Hittites, and Celts to cultures in Asia and America. It is currently considered a Hindu symbol, but it also appears in Buddhism and Jainism. Throughout history it has almost always had a positive meaning. The nazis, who reversed the symbol, were the exception.
