My Son - Holy Temple


My Son Holy Sanctuary is a compound of numerous Champa temple Ruins within a valley that spans around 2km and are encircled among mountains. My Son Holy Sanctuary is known to be one of the major religious Hindu hubs in Southeast Asia and the only heritage of this type in Vietnam

My Son Holy Land is situated in an august mighty valley complex. The Holy Land with more than 70 tower-temple architectural structures of Cham Pa civilization retaining  historical, cultural, architectural and artistic values from 9 centuries’ time (from 4th – 18th century), is regarded as monumental as other renowned relics in the region of South East Asia such as Angkor, Pagan, Borobudur.    

Most of the temples and collateral constructions were built of bricks with sophisticated techniques. Decorative motifs on stone pillars as well as round statues and sandstone bas-reliefs were carved and modeled after Hindu mythologies… The beautiful blending between refined reliefs carved on brick walls outside these temples add a lively and graceful charm to the entire compound of My Son holy sanctuary with the most quintessential influences of Champa arts. My Son holy sanctuary was acknowledged by the UNESCO as the world Cultural Heritage in 1999

Time and the wars have severely impaired the relic. Still, the remainder in My Son play a critically important part in world historic architectural heritage. As the cultural heritage’s globally prominent values need to be protected for the sake of human beings
