My Son Sanctuary Overview
During the 2nd century AD a kingdom ruled present day Central and South Vietnam for over 15 centuries leaving behind magnificent structures unseen in other places. This kingdom was called Champa. Many remnants of the Champ were destroyed through the ages due to many wars that took place, but one area was left standing, the My Son Sanctuary.
About 40 kilometers west from Hoi An, My Son Sanctuary surrounded by lush forests, is located. Partly retaken by nature, this ancient complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and truly depicts the Champa's architectural creations. Not seen anywhere else in the world, this site is a must see for anyone who is interested in cultures from a time long past.
