My Son

An array of partially ruined Hindu temples constructed between the 4th and 14th century, My Son shows many different origins and traces of time. The more recent historical events being the destruction of temples due to carpet bombing campaigns by the US during the Vietnam war.

We did not have much luck with the weather but had to make the most of it in the rain (at times pouring).
