4/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web
Listed as a World Heritage Site, My Son Sanctuary 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.

  • Precious ruins in the middle of the jungle, hot but not enpana at all the travel. Better go in small groups to take advantage of el.tiempo and information guide has to offer. The quality and experience of the Guide make a difference. In our case it made the visit interesting and fun.

  • 美山聖地係一個好似吳哥窟嘅古蹟群 不過細好多 1-2個鐘就行得晒 建議跟團去 因為交通都幾唔方便同埋有導遊講解會好啲 
  • Unfortunately, during the war, a large part of the complex was destroyed. Today, available for inspection a few ruins of the ancient city. A pair of small objects are restored to represent, as it were. Not comparable to the temple complex of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, but if you were not there and you've got a half day off, be sure to visit. The entrance ticket costs 150 000000 VND, paid parking for bikes. On the territory of the free shuttle to the top sightseeing.

  • This is a good site but quite small in comparison to the other se asian ancient sites. Only spent 1 hour here.
  • Unesco heritage site properly looked after and managed. Not just a tacky tourist spot. Incredible history and gives a sense of how small you are in time. Utterly loved being here
  • Amazing work, and very sad history behind its ruins. There's a lot to go through, so spend at least half a day here.
  • have a look at old architecture !
  • Statham, one of the few places left of the culture of Cham pa one time. Pretty is sacred and interesting for those passionate about culture and history.
