My Son sanctuary was the most important religious center of the royal Cham from the 4th to 13th century. Tower-temples were erected to commemorate great victories and conquests, also where the souls of kings after death gathered with the Hindu gods, especially Shiva God. Nowadays, My Son Sanctuary is the remaining cluster of ruined temples but it still attracts a lot of tourists in the world who love ancient architecture as well as the mysterious history of the Champa Kingdom.
