Hello! We’re currently in transit (on the back of a bike) on the way to Vietnams biggest Cham temple site. We’re pretty excited! So, I thought now would be the perfect time to post a little photo diary from the last Cham site we visited in Nha Trang. You may have seen it briefly in our guide to Nha Trang, it was one of our favourite afternoons since arriving in Vietnam!
Situated at the top of a small hill, a short taxi ride from the main drag, these ancient buddhist temples offer a moment of tranquility from the bustling tourist city below. We could have spent hours here exploring the temples and gardens, not to mention enjoying the great views out over the city, mountains and beaches.
The Po Nagar towers date back to the 12th century but only 4 of the once 7/8 towers remain, each dedicated to a different Cham god. The site is still used for worship by Cham (a SE Asian ethnic group), Vietnamese and Chinese buddhists so be respectful if you want to enter the towers by using the gowns provided and removing your shoes.
I hope this collection of photos from our visit to the Po Nagar Cham Towers will help you catch a glimpse of why we enjoyed it so much and maybe even inspire you to visit them if you make it to Nha Trang.
Tickets cost 22,000₫ (£0.75) and it is open from 6am – 6pm. The site is 2 miles from the city centre so we recommend taking a cab, for directions see map.
