Poshanu Cham Tower


Poshanu Cham Tower

Poshanu Cham Towers, located on Ba Nai Hill - 7 km to the northeast of Phan Thiet City, are one of the most precious and important cultural vestiges of the Champa Kingdom.

Poshanu towers are a group of temples built around the end of the eighth century, early ninth century in the ancient Kingdom of Champa, worshiping god Shiva- one of the respected gods of Hinduism. The tower was built in the style of architecture Hoa Lai - the most successful and beautiful tower architecture of the Champa people according to the assessment of art researchers, and attracting a lot of tourists to visit.

Poshanu tower complex consists of three towers: the main Tower A (15m high) located in the South and 2 sub towers including Tower B (12m high) on the North and Tower C (4m hight) on the East. The shrine of Shiva is represented by the stone Liga-Yoni altar preserved in the main tower.

Nowadays, Champa people from surrounding areas come to the Towers every year to conduct different custom rituals. Another interesting fact is that the fishermen also come here to pray for luck in their up-coming trip to the open sea. In the lunar January, the Rija Nuga and Poh Mbang Yang festivals are organized at the foot of the towers and people come to these festivals to ask for luck in the New Year.
