Each historical period has its imprint, each temple and tower worships different gods and kings to create unique architecture like today. However, in general, My Son is built on a quadrangular ground, divided into 3 parts, the base of the tower, the tower body, and the top part all represent a certain meaning.

My Son Sanctuary is likened to the ancient towers of the Champa people, which is the ideal space for a center imbued with Cham Pa religious identity. the beauty of a lost civilization.
In the My Son valley area, there are now more than 50 different large and small towers, there are single standing towers separate, there are twin towers, triple towers standing in clusters, many towers have been weathered by time but traces of the background The tower is still intact. My Son relic was discovered by the French in the 19th century, located in a valley surrounded by mountains and dense forests, from which many scientists, archaeologists come to study and discover the mysterious history of this thousand-year-old tower.
The reliefs and stone statues here partly show the beliefs and aspirations of the Cham people. Not to mention hundreds of stone steles filled with ancient characters are extremely valuable archaeological documents. Not as majestic as the Angkor temples (Cambodia), nor affected by the wave of tourism like the ancient town of Hoi An, but My Son still attracts many tourists by its very own contemplative features. In each brick, each bas-relief of dancing female dancers, each crumbling ancient tower... all seems to be telling faraway guests stories about a glorious past.

In order to preserve the reverence in this place, the food served here is not extended. After exploring My Son, I'm sure you'll be hungry, so try the chicken noodles here. is one of the famous dishes in Quang Nam.
