VIETNAM, June 3, 2019 (VN Express): A cluster of Hindu temples at My Son is on CNN's list of abandoned sacred places. The UNESCO heritage site My Son Sanctuary in the central province of Quang Nam is a complex of abandoned and partly ruined Hindu temples constructed between the 4th and 14th centuries by the Champa, a united kingdom of various groups of the ethnic Cham. "Only 25 of 70 temples survive, the rest were destroyed by U.S. bombing during the Vietnam War," CNN said. The My Son cluster is regarded one of the foremost Hindu temple complexes in Southeast Asia. It is often compared with other historical temple complexes in the region such as Borobudur in Java, Indonesia, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Bagan in Myanmar, and Ayutthaya in Thailand.
