Crumbling Hindu temples adorned with exquisite stone reliefs of chiseled gods and goddesses are all that remain of the once-mighty Champa Kingdom. From roughly the fourth to the fourteenth centuries, this valley about an hour and a half south of Da Nang witnessed royal burials and religious ceremonies. My Son rivals Cambodia’s Angkor Wat temple complex in its vast splendor and was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. It’s worth lingering here until dusk approaches, and the fading crimson light gives the ruins a near-mystical beauty.
