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.

  • I arrived two hours before closing. Tickets 150,000 VND per person. The two 300,000 dong. 500,000 Don Pass, and glancing 20,000 dong while angry loudly, because I did not understand the meaning, the fishing is 200,000 dong, so I said in English, and craps, if you say with anger here, At last, it returned 200,000 dong while it was shiratsu. Because I thought it was state-owned, I was surprised because it was unthinkable that the staff would cheat the fishing. I felt like I was doing habitually in an atmosphere. The moment I was disappointed Viet Nam. The Meeson ruins themselves go to the Museum of Cham sculpture the next day, but I thought that I should go to see the summary of the set to know the outline. The sun was leaning, the tourists were less, the calm was thin, and the sky stained with red was a contrasting place.

  • Very nice site to visit with a show of superb dance and music (a little too short by the way: about twenty minutes)

  • 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
  • This was such an awe- inspiring site. Unfortunately we were on a tour with bus loads of other people but when we could find places less populated, the history of this place really hit you and it came to life. Do a bit of reading before you go so that you can totally appreiate what you are seeing and experiencing. Our guide was more interested in doing his Elvis impersonations than really sharing the rich history of this site.
  • A beautiful and important spot to visit. It is huge, but for me the half-day tour was enough. I would definitely do a guided tour so that all the monuments can be explained.
  • Nice place, picturesque in the morning. We arrived at 7 am and were first people there, but for a very short time. Sanctuary is 2 km from the entrance, but there are shuttle buses (driver usually waits for more people). Beware of spider webs everywhere if you arrive early!
