QUANG NAM (VNS) — The E7 tower in the My Son Sanctuary in the central province of Quang Nam has reopened to tourists after four years of restoration, according to the province's Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The Heritage Preservation Institute of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism restored the tower at a cost of VND9 billion (US$430,000) from the Government budget.

The My Son Sanctuary, a UNESCO-recognised cultural heritage site, is a complex of more than 70 Cham temple towers classified into eight groups.

They were built between the fourth and 13th centuries. The sanctuary is located in a valley in Duy Xuyen District. Last year, it attracted more than 235,000 visitors. — VNS
