Temple at My Son Sanctuary near Hoi An
Click on image to enlarge
Location: Near Hoi An, Vietnam
My Son Sanctuary is the site of Vietnam’s most extensive Cham remains. It is set in a fantastic setting in a lush jungle valley overlooked by Cat’s Tooth Mountain. The temples are in poor shape with only about 20 structures surviving out of the 68 that once stood but that only makes it more exciting for photographers. Couple this with the fantastic red sandstone that the were constructed from which glows bright red at certain times of day and you have a winning formula!
This was once the most important intellectual and religious centre of the kingdom of Champa. It was rediscovered in the late 19th century by the French, who restored parts of the complex. Unfortunately American bombing during the Vietnam War in an attempt to flush out the Viet Cong later devastated the temples. Today it is a Unesco World Heritage site.
We really enjoyed walking around the the site and were grateful to have arrived so early as it was very busy.
