Small Group My Son Sanctuary Tour from Hoi An Program:
In the morning, the tour guide and the driver from Premium Travel Vietnam (PTV) will come to collect you at the hotel in Hoi An and then we begin our Small Group My Son Sanctuary Tour from Hoi An. Thus, we will follow Highway 1A of the country and heading to the former holy site of the Cham people – My Son Sanctuary. The word means “beautiful mountain” and it became the most sacred place for the Cham people when they lived here in such a long time from 2nd to 15th century.
Thus, the complex of Hindu temples in My Son built from 7th to 13th century and it strongly reflected Indian culture when it had an enormous impact on Southeast Asia culture. Therefore, the Cham people had adapted this featured culture and richen their culture as well as their lifestyle. Also,the Cham had chosen a holy site near the holy mountain in My Son to build up such a glorious and elegant Hindu complex inside a dense jungle.
In 1895, the French discovered My Son Hindu Temples and unearthed to find out many precious artifacts carved beautifully by artisans of Cham people. In addition, they also found out many statues and pieces that were important to the study of Cham culture later. They came to conclude that My Son Sanctuary was the most typical Hindu temple/structure in Southeast Asia.
Moreover, after many years of studies about My Son Sanctuary, scientists classified My Son temples into different groups named by letters such as A, B, C, D, E, F, H and so on. In each group, there is a main temple/sanctuary where the Cham people worship a set of linga and yoni – they symbolize for fertility. Besides, there are some auxiliary temples around the main one playing different roles such as gate temple, meditation hall, holy water storage…
In My Son Holyland, all the main doors of the main temples face to the east. According to the story of the Cham, it is the direction of the Sun and it is where the Hindu Gods live.
Although the severe war in 1968 seriously affected My Son Holyland but today there are still 20 temples remained focusing on 3 main groups of B, C, D. So, My Son is worth a masterpiece that you will not miss.
So on arrival in My Son, we will get transfer by golf cart and then walk into the site to explore it.
Hence, we will wander around lovely valley in My Son and firstly pay a visit to 3 main groups of B, C, D. Through story of your tour guide, you will know about the skills, talents, intelligence of the ancient Cham people.
