My Son Sanctuary

My Son, located 69 km southwest of Danang, set in a small valley belonging to Duy Phu Commune, Duy Xuyen District, Quang Nam Province, was an imperial city during the Cham dynasty, between the 4th and 12th centuries. My Son was considered as the sanctuary of the Cham Kingdom although it had two sanctuaries belonging to two main opposing clans: the Dua Clan was the place for the worship of God Srisana Bhadresvara, who ruled over the north of the kingdom and the Cau Clan dedicated to Goddess Po Nagar, who reigned over the south had Po Nagar Sanctuary.

My Son Sanctuary is a huge complex of religious relics that includes more than 70 architectural works as temples and towers connect to each other with sophisticated red brick designs. Many of its artifacts, especially statues of female dancers and genies worshipped by the Cham people, were collected and displayed at the Cham Architecture Museum in Danang city. Although there are not many pieces left, those that remain display the typical sculptural works of the Cham nationality’s culture. Furthermore, they are also lively proof to confirm the history of a nationality living within the Vietnamese community boasting of a rich cultural tradition.
