French archaeologists divided the ruins in My Son into 10 groups, called A, A', B, C, D, E, F, G, H and K, and assigned each structure a name consisting of a letter followed by a number. Many of the monuments (including the A complex with its once magnificent A1 Tower) were destroyed during the Vietnam war. What remains and is accessible to tourists are the the temples in the centrally-located groups B, C and D. The photos in these gallery show a number of structures, including stupas and Hindu temples.
