My Son- Cham temple ruins

We went over to some 1,000 year old ruins called My Son. Our guide, Newt(?), was pleasant and helpful.

Back in the Vietnam War, the Vietcong used the area as a staging base. The US dropped a few bombs and knocked down some of the temples. Bummer. But they are still pretty impressive.

The temples are built of brick with sandstone for the figures heads.
