About Po Nagar Temple
Some independent travellers choose not to visit Nha Trang because it attracts a lot of package holiday tourists for short beach holidays, as well as Vietnamese holiday makers on short breaks, and the town centre is very commercial as a consequence, lacking the charm of other Vietnamese cities and towns which receive fewer visitors. Nha Trang is, however, well worth visiting if only to go to Po Nagar Temple which is one of the most interesting ancient sites in South East Asia.
Po Nagar Temple was established in 781 and work continued expanding the temple up to the 17th Century. Po Nagar is a primarily Hindu temple built by the Cham civilisation, who ruled much of South East Asia from the 6th to 15th Centuries before being displaced from Vietnam by the Viet ethnic group. The Cham are believed to have come to mainland South East Asia from Borneo and to have adopted a variety of religious beliefs including Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam, and the shrines and carvings at Po Nagar temple reflect this range of beliefs. Po Nagar Temple has 4 main towers and a central shrine to a goddess who resembles the Hindu deity Durga. The temple also has several rows of smaller octagonal brick towers on a lower level which are very impressive. Po Nagar is one of the most impressive religious sites in Vietnam and probably the best surviving example of the architecture of the ancient Cham civilisation.
