My Son Sanctuary

The Cham people started building this sanctuary in the 4th century and kept adding to it until the 13th century. My Son is a UNESCO Heritage Site — in a country with an abundance of Buddhist sites, this is a rare Hindu temple.

Because the construction of this temple spans 10 centuries, it helps to tell the story Southeast Asian art. There are a total of 71 buildings, so give yourself time to explore. Take a tour with a guide so they can point out the reliefs that depict Hindu mythology. The complex was designed according to Hindu beliefs — the building in the middle represents the center of the universe.
