My Son Sanctuary in Vietnam Dedicated to Hindu God Lord Shiva to be renovated



Built between the 4th to the 13th century by the Champa Kingdom, My Son Sanctuary in Vietnam is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The temples and other structures at My Son were greatly influenced by Hinduism and Hindu culture and architecture and are dedicated to Lord Shiva. The site is noted for impressive tower-temples.

Sadly, most of the structures in My Son Sanctuary are in a dilapidated condition – thanks to the war in Vietnam, aging and lack of renovation and care.

Now the Vietnamese governement is planning to renovate the sanctuary in two phases. (reports Saigon)
