My Son A10 at the My Son World Cultural Heritage Site is being restored.

The 2.26m-high, 2.58m-long and 2.58m-wide pedestal is constructed from 17 stone blocks. It dates back to between the 9th and 10th centuries.

A set of Linga-Yoni is placed on the pedestal. The Yoni is 2.25m in length and 1.69m in width while the Linga is 55cm in diameter and 57cm in height.

The pedestal was found by Vietnamese and Indian experts during restoration work at the site in May last year.

According to local experts, My Son A10 pedestal has a unique form with the largest set of Linga-Yoni statue in Champa sculpture found so far. Besides, it is decorated with typical patterns of Dong Duong style.

The pedestal is a rare work of its kind that remains intact in the worshipping space at the My Son Sanctuary.
