Foreign tourists returning to UNESCO-recognised My Son Sanctuary

More than 40 international tourists visited My Son Sanctuary, a UNESCO-recognised world heritage site in central Quang Nam province on November 22, after a long period of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Apart from foreign tourists, domestic vacationers have also registered for tours to My Son.

My Son Sanctuary, around a one-hour drive from Hoi An ancient town, is a complex of abandoned and partially-ruined Hindu temples built between the 4th and 14th centuries by the Champa kingdom. Despite the ravages of war and time, My Son Sanctuary bore witness to the history of ancient Champa and is an important part of the world’s cultural heritage.

The sanctuary was recognised as a world cultural heritage site by UNESCO in 1999./.
