We continue cycling along the little used route to enjoy the beautiful scenery and sample local life. At My Son we visit the amazing temples of the Cham people to learn more about this Holy Land where the Cham people worshiped Shiva, the God of war. These magnificent structures were built of clay bricks by of the Cham between 4th – 13th century and it is unbelievable how these people constructed the temples with so few materials. Myson was always the religious heart of the Cham people and indeed, before and up to the 15th century, this unique site was as important as Angkor Wat. The site was originally made up of 75 temples but sadly only 20 temples survived the destruction of the war.
