Poshanu Cham tower

Poshanu Cham Towers, located on Ong Hoang (Mr Heaven)  Hill - 7 km to the northeast of Phan Thiet City, are one of the most precious and important cultural vestiges of the Champa Kingdom. Beside three main towers, there was once a temple, but it has been buried in the ground for more than 300 years. Inside the main tower, there is still a symbol of the genitals of men and women, which is worshipped by the Cham. They are called Linga and Yoni.

This group of Poshanu Cham tower temples was constructed on the later half of eighth century by the Champa people to worship Shiva-the God that is adored by the Indian and the Cham. Until 15th century, a tower was built to worship Princess Po Sah Inu, the daughter of King Para Chanh . Since this event, the temples are named Poshanu.

This is the only Cham architectural work in Phan Thiet. It was built 1,200 years ago. However, there are only three towers remaining (main tower, medium tower, and small tower). Inside the main tower, there are stone altars of Linga and Yoni. They are the symbol of Shiva with many carved and sculptured patterns reflecting existence and growth of Cham reproduction. In some documents in the late of 19th century, there was a stone bull in the medium tower, but the stone bull disappeared. Today, these towers belong to Cham villages of Ma Lam, Ham Tri, and Ham Phu. Annually, local people from other places come to Poshanu Towers to conduct religious ceremonies. In recent years, since this monument was remodeled and restored, the level of visiting and ritual performace of  the Cham has been increasing.

During Kate festival, at Poshanu Cham Towers, the atmosphere here is so exciting. The Cham group holds important ritual customs and featuring festive activities. Tourists from everywhere come here to visit, explore and admire traditional features of Cham culture.
Poshanu Cham Towers were recognized as national architectural and artistic monument.
