Mỹ Sơn

Mỹ Sơn Sanctuary is a perfect day-trip from Da Nang! This place is almost 1600 years old and is the remnant of the Champa people, who once inhabited and ruled over this area. Here, you can find the Hindu temples that worship Shiva, one of the main deities of the Hindu religion. Surprisingly, a lot of buildings here are preserved, and you can even see the interiors. UNESCO recognized this and protected it.
