So, this site is the complex with really beautiful Hindu temples and towers surrounded by mountain range. As the scientists said that My Son was the ceremonial offering place and also burial site for Cham royal family. Also, it played the role of the principal religious center of Hinduism in Southest Asia and was a designated UNESCO site of Vietnam in December 4th, 1999.
Specifically, the art and architecture of My Son holy land had strong Indian influences. Accordingly, the site had many group temples in which each group had main tower Kalan and some more surrounding auxiliary temples. Kalan was normally used to worship Linga or God of Shiva (most powerful God in Hinduism). All the temples had pyramidal shapes from low to high in which the highest one was compared to Mount Meru – place of Hindu God.
At present, some main towers in My Son worship a set of linga or Shiva god. The area used to have 70 structures but 25 of which remain today. My Son built from 7th to 13th century and disvcovered by the French and later on they paid lots of efforts in restoring the site in 1934 but My Son had been massively devastated by the war in 1968.
