Indian and Vietnamese experts have started the excavation and restoration of two tower clusters of My Son Sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the central province of Quang Nam. The restoration is expected to preserve the core values of each ancient tower in the complex.

The restoration project has a total cost of more than 2.7 million USD, of which the Indian government funded 2.3 million USD.

The work is expected to take several stages in the next five years.

During the excavation, experts discovered numerous valuable objects, such as a sphinx statue, terracotta materials from the 11th century, as well as two tunnels which are believed to have been for high-ranking dignitaries to use in ceremonies.
