This is a sacred place for Cham people of Vietnam that testifies to their historical and cultural roots. They come for visit during holidays but other times tourists come to see the structure and rituals of the Cham people.

We decided to visit this temple as something to do. It was an interesting place. The architecture is unique compared to many traditional Buddhist temples. Inside the main temple itself you get a very interesting sensation as when you look up it is pitch black and you cannot see the roof. I was disappointed with tourists taking photos inside the...

The Cham towers are well looked after and are in amazing condition. You can go inside the structures to look at alters but you must be appropriately dressed. It is okay to look from the entrance if not. Bonus is the stunning views from the top, you can see across the city to the mountains and the ocean.

After seeing so many different Buddhist temples, this was a nice change of pace being Hindu and also quite a bit older than most other sites we had visited. You could go inside the structures and see the offerings and alter in each. Interesting history and well maintained. Although Hindu in origin, other religious visitors seemed to use the site... More

We went there this afternoon on a tour from our hotel. Interesting that it was originally Hindu not Buddhist. We were fortunate to see the women practicing for the holiday coming up. There were long sleeved jackets that you could put on top of your clothing if not dressed appropriately to enter. The inside of the temples are very dark... More

Built between 8th & 11th C this is one of the two main places in Vietnam to see Cham ruins - the other is My Son near Hoi An. The Cham Kingdom stretched as far as Angkor Wat and these small towers are architecturally very similar. They show a mix of Buddhist and Hindu gods, lots of elephants & phallic... More

A good look back at another site of history in Vietnam. Nice to see it being used still by so many locals, not only tourists.

We travelled to and from the towers from the strip via taxi and it only cost about £3 each way. Admission is less than £1 and the towers are well worth seeing and there is also a good view across the river and the city from here.

We visited this site as part of our tour of Vietnam, so were fortunate to have our guide to explain the history of the temples. The main temple is quite imposing and some good restoration has ensured this important historical site remains. The towers stand on a prominent position of the Cai River and afford lovely views over the river... More

We enjoyed visiting Po Nagar Cham Towers. We walked from the centre of Nha Trang, taking in the scenery (approximately 2.5 miles). It costs 20.000 vnd pp to enter and is worth viewing. They offer free dress to put on if you wish to go inside. This is only required if your shoulders and knees are not covered.
