At a glance:

One of the most gorgeous sights that Hoi An has to offer is My Son Sanctuary, Vietnams most noteable site of the ancient Kingdom of Champa. It is located 37 kilometres from Hoi An, roughly a 1 hour drive. Between the 4th and 13th centuries, a culture which owed its religious origins to Indian Hinduism existed on the coast of contemporary Vietnam.

 

Today, it is still graphically illustrated by the remains of a spectacular sequence of tower-temples. These temples are located on a site that was the spiritual and political capital of the Champa Kingdom for most of its existence. Initially constructed with wood, the structures were fully destroyed by fire in the 6th century. They were then restored in the 7th century by Sambhuvarman, who rebuilt the temples with locally made bricks. Up until 13th century, more than 70 similar temples had been constructed, establishing My Son as a sanctuary of Hinduism within the Champa Kingdom.

We appreciate that at our request this individual arrived earlier to the hotel than the proven time

To My Son sanctuary in the early morning with for a haft day tour, the towers hide in the middle of the fog, My Son holy land was a mystical place. Known as the history of this site, you will be seen that the last ragnarion raged, but the rest of the restoration. I recommend that you arrive early in the morning as the tourists are few and you can watch the sun rise. The ethnic dance is very unique, it is a highlight of this place. I will spend more time returning to this place.

My Son is a great place and I booked a tour of this place with Hoi An Travel. Need to see and realise the distruction of war for the ancient relics. Great craters are reminiscent of devastating bomb attacks in the area.
