Myanmar is hoping for golden in travel with a lost temple city. Julian Hattem World Developement.

At the beginning of the period, there was a lone ape, who struck a duck that layed an ovum, from which a great emperor was borne, who at the place of his death constructed a city and named it "ape egg". Mrauk U (Affenei) was the capitol of a great empire and one of the wealthiest towns in Asia.

Until the eighteenth centuary it was an important trade harbour for Indian, Persian and Arabian Indian rices, ivories, elvants, resin and deerskin, as well as wool, slave, horses, seasonings and textile. Over the following few hundred years, it disintegrated into a provincial city in Myanmar's restless Rakhine state. However, the city where once Christians, Muslims and Buddhists were living in perfect balance can still be seen today in its hundred destroyed churches, forts and warehouses - mostly ignored for more than 100 years.

Now, archeologists are speeding to measure and preserve these places in the hope of securing a place for Mrauk U on Unesco's UNESCO global cultural legacy in the footprints of Cambodian Angkor Wat and the Egyptian pilgrims. Supported by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan - who said Mrauk U was "probably the greatest corporeal demonstration of Rakhine's wealth of past and present" - an intergovernmental committee this year published an intermediate review calling on Myanmar to declare the city a UNESCO site, and since then the excitement has been growing at an exponential rate.

It will take several years, but the administration hopes to turn Mrauk U from a lost city of ghosts into a truly international tourism destination that attracts literally a hundred thousand each year. And, perhaps, as Annan said, the effort will help resolve a violent racial dispute that has split the state of Rakhine between nationalistic Buddhists and the Rohingya, a group of ethnical Muslims trapped in a refugees' den in the state.

Right-wing groups say that the Rohingya are the goal of a long lasting ethnical purification campagne. Mrauk U's present populations must be thoroughly analysed and their vegetation predicted so that further development such as new irrigations do not disturb the wreck.

The locals are hoping that Mrauk U will become international and bring the much needed money to one of Myanmar's impoverished states. In turn, a strong industry can reduce the boiling tension some Buddha ists felt towards the Rohingya and bring to mind a universe of Buddhist, Muslim and Christianity.

Mrauk U was described by Europeans from the Netherlands and Portugal as "the gold city" from the fifteenth to eighteenth-century. Much of the bigger temple from this gold period is still untouched. Shitthaung Temple is said to contain 80,000 Buddha-stones. Koe Thaung Temple is even bigger, with 90,000 Buddha pictures sculpted in three floors of gem.

We Nyein Lwin and his crew are in the process of making a list of all the remaining remnants in Mrauk U. When they are done, they can create up to 3,000 maps. In the northeast of the city once was a large plaque known as the Santikan Musque, in an area now ruled by paddy fields, but many locals have never even known it.

In order to get to the compound, a traveler must take a one-hour trip from Yangon, Myanmar's commercial and culture capitol, and then meander up the Kaladan for a few long hrs. Bagan temple attracts 70 of them. Angkor Wat Temple in Cambodia receives more than two million people a year.

It will be made more easily reachable by an airfield being constructed outside Mrauk U. However, it fell off in 2012 when the area was shaken by people. Certain facets of Mrauk U's story are caught up in today's racial war.
