My Son Ruins & Sanctuary are set in a small valley in Quang Nam Province, about 40km from Hoi An City. Of the Cham ruins in Viet Nam, My Son possesses several monuments and epitaphs, which are even now being being studied by archeologists. Each new monarch came to My Son after his accession to the throne, for the ceremony of purification and to present offerings and erect new monuments. The temples at My Son were built into groups that basically followed the same model. Each group was comprised of a main sanctuary surrounded by towers and supplementary monuments dedicated to Shiva. The smaller temples are devoted to the spirits of the eight compass points.
