As you know, My Son Sanctuary Vietnam is regarded as one of Southeast Asia’s most important, attractive, and well-known temple complex. Thus, it is frequently compared to other Southeast Asian historical temples such as Bagan in Myanmar, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Borodudur in Indonesia, and Ayutthaya in Thailand. It also exemplifies Champa religion, culture, and architectural prowess from the past. My Son Sanctuary is a vast complex with a multitude of religious structures, temples, and graves situated on a 2 km long valley surrounded by mountains. It would be a huge mistake not to visit My Son Sanctuary from Da Nang or Hoi An city. Therefore, Premium Travel Vietnam arranges My Son Sanctuary From Hoi An.
THE NAME & DISCOVERY TIME?
In Vietnamese language, My Son means beautiful mountain because My Son Sanctuary was built in a valley which is surrounded by a mountain range.
My Son was built from the 4th and 13th centuries CE and Camille Paris, a French cartographer on a mission in the region, made the discovery of My Son Holy land in 1889.

MY SON SANCTUARY TOUR FROM HOI AN ITINERARY?
In the morning the tour guide and driver will come to collect you at the hotel in Hoi An and then begin our My Son Sanctuary from Hoi An. So, we will pass through lovely rustic countryside of Vietnam as well as massive rice paddy fields.
Sometimes, you may encounter seeing farmers working in the field or some water buffaloes bathing in the muddy field. At that time, your camera is ready to take some great pictures.
Following Highway 1A, we then head up to My Son Holyland – the former holy site for the Cham people. Thus, My Son was built in a dense jungle forest and belonged to the sacred mount of Khe The My Son. That was one reason why the Cham built such an amazing Hindu complex right inside the valley.
In the old times, the Cham people chose My Son Valley to build the holy site to be peaceful and sacred as an offering to King Bhadresvara. Besides, they chose the holy stream of My Son to organise ritual ceremonies, especially this sacred stream represents Goddess Ganga, the wife of Shiva God.
Moreover, this mountain looks like holy birb Garuda heading out to the sea with a wish that he can bring peace, wealth and prosperity for the whole Champa Kingdom.
Thus, My Son became the most typical Hindu structure in Southeast Asia. The whole complex was built from 7th to 13th centuries and deeply influenced by Indian culture.
Later on in 1895, My Son Sanctuary discovered by the French and they came here to do lots of research about My Son. Hence, they divided My Son into many groups of B, C, D, G, E, F and H.
According to them, each group in My Son had the main temple of Kalan where the principal ceremony was held. Inside the Kalan consisted of Linga and Yoni (symbol of fertility). And some surrouding temples around Kalan are used for different functions such as water storage, gate temple, house of meditation…
In 1968’, My Son was a hide out for Viet Cong guerillas in the war and the destruction massively affected the site. However, constant efforts from many organisations and countries have been restoring lots of ruins of My Son.
To visit My Son Sanctuary from Hoi An, upon arriving in My Son Sanctuary, we get transfer by golf cart and go inside the valley to explore this amazing complex.
We will wander off the place to visit the main areas of B, C, D groups; following is the visit to groups of G, E then F. Through the guidance of the tour guide, you can admire and respect the talent, the skill, the creative mind of the Cham people in building such a glorious site. They used really simple tools and built huge Hindu temples without using any mortar or concrete.
Upon finishing, you can come to a theatre to enjoy the Cham dance show which demonstrates the daily working life of the Cham. By the way, you will have an insight into Cham culture.
Eventually, we then head back out to our car. From here, we will transfer you back to the hotel in Hoi An. Therefore, our My Son Sanctuary Tour from Hoi An is coming to an end here.
