Cham tower reopens after four-year upgrade

A Cham tower within the UNESCO-recognised My Son Sanctuary in the central province of Quang Nam has reopened for tourists after nearly four years of restoration.

The restoration project of the E7 tower, which began in early 2011, was implemented at a cost of over 9 billion VND (413,000 USD) with support from Indian experts.

During the restoration, archaeologists unearthed nearly 200 objects inside and around the tower which will be handed to the My Son Relic and Tourism Management Board for protection, public display and research.

Apart from tower E7, the Indian experts have coordinated with Vietnamese agencies to conduct surveys, the results of which will serve as a basis for determining solutions to upgrade relic sites in Zone A of the sanctuary.

Spanning 142 hectares, the My Son Sanctuary consists of eight groups of 71 standing monuments and an untold number of unearthed relics.

The sanctuary was recognised by UNESCO as world heritage in 1999.-VNA
