my son overview - world heritage site

My son is located near Duy Phu village in the administrative district of Duy Xuyen in Quang Nam province in Central Vietnam, about 60 km from Hoi An town. My Son became a religious centre under King Bhadravarman in the late 4th century and was constantly occupied until the 13th century - the longest period of development of any monument in Southeast Asia( compared to the 3 century lasting development of Angkor and Bagan). Most of My Son's temples were delicated to Cham kings associated with divinities, especially Silva. The god was regarded as the founder and protector of charmpa's dynasties.

Most of My Son's temples were made of red brick except the stone-made temple labelled "B1". Even the decorative carvings on the Cham temples were cut directly onto the bricks themselves, rather than onto sandstone slabs inserted into brick walls as is observable for example in the 9th century Cambodian temple of Bakong.

Upto now, the construction techniques used by the Cham builders have not been completely understood even though many reseaches and conferences have been made by international scientists and scholars. Issues that have not been completely resolved include issues about the firing of the bricks, the mortar between the bricks, and decorative carvings found on the bricks. This is the reason to discover My Son. Upto now, My Son is one of highlights for Vietnam tour packages

8:00 am pick up, drive to My Son Holy Land, a World Heritage, 60 km southwest of Hoi An. Located in a lush valley, My Son was a capital and religious center of Cham people, now remaining with red brick towers and sanctuaries. My Son has been considered to be in the same league as some of Southeast Asia's greatest archaeological sites, including Angkor in Cambodia, Bagan in Myanmar, Ayutthaya in Thailand and Borobudur in Indonesia. These towers and sanctuaries were built from the 7 to 13 centuries.

Dear Mr. Huy Hoang
We had a wonderful amazing trip and will return as soon as we can afford it again. Thank you so much! I will write a great review on tripadvisor. Really the guides and hotels and tours were awesome. Ms. Nhung was very sweet and refreshingly honest, very likeable. Mr. Tam was fantastic, highly knowledgeable and funny. Probably our best "tour" was the day we spent on motor bikes visiting the tombs near Hue. The bikes allow for a much more intimate view of the countryside. And then - as I wrote - Mr. An was absolutely the best guide ever...Read more
