Mỹ Sơn, Duy Xuyen District

Listed as a World Heritage Site, Mỹ Sơn served as a burial place for the Cham royalty and a sacred site for Hindu ceremonies. Built between the 4th and 14th centuries in a blend of architectural styles, the cluster of partially ruined tower-temples remains one of the oldest archaeological sites in the region. Inspect many types of religious stone buildings on the site, such as a brick sanctuary, gate-tower, and a house sheltering valuables offered to the deities. Inside you can find many inscriptions in Sanskrit and old Cham, which portray the ancient rulers' need to receive affirmation from the divine.

  • It’s a nice historical place although at the moment there isn’t a ton there. If you’ve been to Angkor Watt there is absolutely no point to come here. If you haven’t and want to a couple interesting looking small temples then it’s worth the visit.
  • Very nice bombed temple's for the year 400 till 1100. The tour guide was very good! Gives a lot of information. Don't go between 1 and 3 o'clock in the afternoon because its too hot and there is almost now shadow there
