Group C

Hindu Temple in My Son

The 8th-century C1 was used to worship Shiva, portrayed here in human form. Inside is an altar where a statue of Shiva, now in the Museum of Cham Sculpture in Danang, used to stand. Note the motifs, characteristic of the 8th century, carved into the brickwork of the exterior walls. Given the massive bomb crater in front of this group, it’s amazing that anything’s still standing.
