NDO/VNA - Experts of Vietnam and the Archaeological Survey of India team have been accelerating the implementation of a project to conserve and repair tower-temples of Group A at the My Son World Cultural Heritage Site in the central province of Quang Nam.

Director of the Management Board of the site Phan Ho said the experts and hundreds of skilled workers are sparing no efforts to complete main conservation tasks for the A1, A12 and A13 tower-temples prior to the rainy season.

The area of Group A, comprising 13 monuments, suffered huge damage during wartime and needs urgent repairs due to harsh influence of nature and time.

Once the religious and political capital of the Champa Kingdom, My Son Sanctuary is located within a hilly landscape in Duy Phu commune, Duy Xuyen district, about 70 km southwest of central Da Nang city and 40 km from Hoi An ancient town.

It is comprised of eight groups of 71 monuments built from the 7th to 13th centuries.

The sanctuary was recognised as a world cultural heritage site by UNESCO in 1999.
