My Son Sanctuary

Thank you Tiem! This was the capital of the Champa Kingdom, from the 4th-13th centuries. Hindu tower temples, as seen on the right stamp dot the landscape. 142 acres of My Son are UNESCO protected, though larger, land mines are still extant in these areas. My Son sustained damage in the Vietnam War, specifically, during August '69 when the US carpet-bombed the area. Previous to this, in the 30s and 40s the French had restored many temples.
