My Son Sanctuary was built from the 4th to 13th centuries with nearly 70 buildings remaining in the heart of My Son valley. The conservation of this tower complex was started from the late 19th century to early 20th century by French and Vietnamese experts. However, this work was devastated and disrupted by war.

Since 1975, My Son Sanctuary has been restored and revived with the supports from foreign governments, partners and experts such as Poland, Italy, Japan and India. My Son Sanctuary was recognized as an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999.
