Tribute to Thor Heyerdahl

I wrote once about Caucasian Albanian temple in Kish, village of Sheki in this blog.

Today I am posting a photo of a bronze portrait of Thor Heyerdahl that stands in front of the temple who said the following during his visit to Sheki.

“Scandinavian mythology describes a god called ODIN that came to Nothern Europe from a place called Azer. I have studied these writings and concluded that it is not mythology. It is real history and geography.”

Personally I am fascinated by grand work Thor Heyerdahl was able to do during his life. Thanks to him our Caucasian Albanian temple in Kish got revitalized as well…
