Listed as a World Heritage Site, Mỹ Sơn served as a burial place for the Cham royalty and a sacred site for Hindu ceremonies. Built between the 4th and 14th centuries in a blend of architectural styles, the cluster of partially ruined tower-temples remains one of the oldest archaeological sites in the region. Inspect many types of religious stone buildings on the site, such as a brick sanctuary, gate-tower, and a house sheltering valuables offered to the deities. Inside you can find many inscriptions in Sanskrit and old Cham, which portray the ancient rulers' need to receive affirmation from the divine. Using our international travel planner, Duy Xuyen District attractions like Mỹ Sơn can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It was very worth doing…. They say it is the Ankor Wat of Vietnam. Having not been to the actual Ankor Wat, I still imagine they are correct.

  • Great place to spend a few hours, walking around and imagining what happened in the past based on the structures and the text. Roam around and climb up and down in the structures and have fun 😊. Mistake I made was coming too late and it was very hot. Suggest to come in the morning where the weather is much more forgiving. There is transport that sends you go the ruins from the mini museum. Tickets prices are 150k per pax
  • Beautiful place must visit if you are in Hoi an. It s not that big it took us 2 hours. You can take a guide not expensive at all. Once you arrive to the site, an electric car will be waiting for you ( included in the ticket price ) so you don't need to walk a lot to see this site. The guide gives important info about the historical value of the site.
