My Son is an ancient complex of Hindu temples which dates to the era of the Champa dynasty and was used for religious ceremonies and the burial of Champa kings. The Champas existed between the 4th and 13th Centuries and derived from Indian Hinduism.
The temples are located in a valley surrounded by mountains and have been recognised by UNESCO's World Heritage committee as the finest example of Hindu temple complexes in SE Asia. UNESCO listed it as an example of the evolution and change in culture of a civilisation that no longer exists.
My Son was carpet-bombed by B52s during the Vietnam war which led to the destruction and damage of many of the temples.
Hoi An Ancient Town
Hoi An's Ancient Town was recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1999. The town represents a very well preserved example of a typical South East Asian trading port in the classic style of the 15th to 19th centuries and combines both local architectural styles and those brought in by western trading nations. In justifying the inclusion of Hoi An on the list, the UNESCO committee said that it represented the "fusion of cultures over time in an international commercial port".
The tomb of Khai Dinh is located approximately 2.5 km from the Perfume River at a distance of 10 km from the city of Hue. It has an elaborate construction that blends modern and ancient architecture as well as combining European and Asian influences. There is a monumental staircase with a dragon and decorated internal salons which make the tomb one of the most visited in the area.
The UNESCO World Heritage Committee included Khai Dinh on the list of monuments when they inscribed the 'Complex of Hue Monuments' on the list of heritage sites in 1993.
