po nagar cham towers

Eight Po Nagar Cham Towers were built on Cu Lao Marble Hill, 2 km north of Nha Trang, between the eighth and 13th centuries. The largest of the four remaining towers was built in honour of Po Nagar, also known as Lady Thien Y-ana or the Goddess Mother; she spent part of her life teaching weaving and agricultural techniques.

The 22.5m tower contains her sandstone statue sitting cross-legged on Buddha's throne. The 2.6m statue has 10 hands, each holding a specific object illustrating the intellect and power of Buddha.

The remaining towers were dedicated to different gods: the central tower to Cri Cambhu, the north-west tower to Sandhaka and the south tower to Ganeesh. Not only are the towers famous for their architecture and sculpture, but also for their great significance in terms of history, nationalism and archaeology.

Standing on the top of the hill, one can admire the beautiful landscapes of the coastal region of Nha Trang.
