Last year, during my stay in Nha Trang, I had a brief lour to Ponagar Cham Towers, one of the most beautiful examples of Cham architecture in central Vietnam.
The Ponagar Cham Towers consist of four towers. They are located on Cu Lao Marble Hill, two kilometers north of Nha Trang. They were built between the 8th and 13th centuries.
The remaining towers were dedicated to different god. The larsest tower was built in honor of Lady Thien Y. The 22.5m high tower contains her sandstone statue sitting on Buddha’s throne. The 2.6m high statue has 10 hands, holding specific objects illustrating the power of Buddha.
The tour to Ponagar Cham Towers lasted 5 hours. I was rather tired, but the tour was enjoyable, memorable and informative.
