A visit to the My Son Sanctuary is an experience that shouldn't be missed while visiting the beautiful city of Hoi An. This halfday trip features a visit to the capital and religious centre of the former Champa Kingdom, My Son, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. During a time spanning from the 4th to 8th centuries, when Tra Kieu (then known as Simhapura) served as the political capital of Champa, My Son was the site of the most important Cham intellectuals and a religious centre. It is also believed that this site could have been used as a place of burial for Cham monarchs. My Son is considered to be Cham's counterpart to the grand cities of South-East Asia's other Indian influenced civilizations: Angkor (Cambodia), Bagan (Myanmar), Ayuthaya (Thailand) and Borobudur(Java).
