Create an itinerary including Mỹ Sơn
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. Using our international travel planner, Duy Xuyen District attractions like Mỹ Sơn can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Beautiful and unique location. Went early and our group was the only ones on the property for hours. Many structures still standing (after surviving the bombings), are crafted in a unique ways. They are trying their best to preserve and restore much of the complex, but much work still is to be done.
  • Such a interesting place Unfortunately empty in this time of COVID-19 but good place to see at least once 🙂
  • Best go with a tour guide and in cooler times. At the moment there is no bus, so better go by bike. Map shows two places, but it’s just 1 place with a shuttle between the sanctuary/museum and the ruins. We heard what sounded like a performance around 10AM, but missed it.
  • Loved it. Only advice is to visit during early morning or late evening as it gets pretty sunny and hot making it difficult to enjoy the experience. The architecture and whole feeling of being there is awesome
  • I had a great experience amazing history I'll go back soon also saw many amazing dragon flys and birds and nature
