Champa Temple and holy mountain - My Son

Champa Temple and holy mountain – My Son

We have visited many religious sites in Vietnam.  Before the Viet people came here, the Champa built Hindu temples at MySon and Nha Trang. In Hue we visited the Imperial Place, Forbidden City and on the outskirts of the city, the tomb of Tu Duc. Built during his life time, the site was like the royal country estate- parks and lakes with residences for the royal family (and, of course, the concubines). Everywhere, the art in the details was beautiful.
