ITINERARY BY DAY

MY SON HOLY LAND HALF DAY TOUR

One of the most gorgeous sights that Hoi An has to offer is My Son Sanctuary, Vietnams most noteable site of the ancient Kingdom of Champa. It is located 37 kilometres from Hoi An, roughly a 1 hour drive. Between the 4th and 13th centuries, a culture which owed its religious origins to Indian Hinduism existed on the coast of contemporary Vietnam.

Today, it is still graphically illustrated by the remains of a spectacular sequence of tower-temples. These temples are located on a site that was the spiritual and political capital of the Champa Kingdom for most of its existence. Initially constructed with wood, the structures were fully destroyed by fire in the 6th century. They were then restored in the 7th century by Sambhuvarman, who rebuilt the temples with locally made bricks. Up until 13th century, more than 70 similar temples had been constructed, establishing My Son as a sanctuary of Hinduism within the Champa Kingdom.
