Thus, My Son Sanctuary was the most holy place for the Cham people who lived here in the old days from 2nd to 14th century. It became the site where the Cham who presented ceremonial offerings to Hindu Gods including Shiva, Brahma, Vishnu ect. In a lush green beautiful valley, there are dozens of red brick towers built dating back thousands years ago.
Earlier, My Son was built from 7th to 13th century inside a jungle and the French discovered it in 1895. Later, they cleared up the jungle and saw lots of temples and a bunch of sandstones statues that deeply had Indian influences. After doing more research on the site, the French scientists came to conclude that My Son was the most typical and important Hindu site for not only Cham people in Vietnam but also for Southeast Asian region.
In total, My Son consisted of various groups of A, A’, B, C, D, G, E, F, H, K and had roughly 70 temples. Each group had a main temple of Kalan where the Cham worship a set of Linga and Yoni. And some auxilliary temples and towers around to play different functions such as water storage, changing room, house of meditation ect. In old times, the Cham had come here once a year to pray for better bumper rice crop, prosperity, happiness and fertility for the whole country.
However, the war mostly devastated My Son in 1968. Some of temples remained intact and it gets restored by many countries. On Dec 4th, 1999, My Son Sanctuary was recognized as World Cultural Heritage.
