Thap Ba Ponagar, Nha Trang Reviews
Very nice historic place. Dress as you would to enter a church, no cut out shirt or bikinis; otherwise, you'll be refuced to enter and ticket not refunded, it is still a temple. There are many stairs but not to high. A lot of tourists. In city, can be reached by cab, easy to fetch a cab too.
In the coastal city of Nha Trang, you can not afford to visit the Ponagar Tower - one of the most famous historical and cultural monuments in the country. Ponagar Tower has unique architecture and is almost intact through time. About 2 km north of the city center, the tower is built on a fairly flat, spacious land of a marble hill, 10m above sea level, located on the banks of the Cai River, 2/4 Street, Nha Trang. The architecture of the Ponagar Tower consists of 3 floors. Lower level: The horizontal ground is the gate tower that is no longer there. There are stone stairs leading up to the middle floor, where there are only two main octagonal brick columns, each with 5 m diameter more than 1 meter and 3 meters higher. On the two sides of the large columns are 12 small and lower columns, all on a brick floor higher than 1 meter. The top floor is where the towers were built, in front of the main tower. Ponagar Tower refers to the population of this temple, but it is actually the name of the largest tower, about 23m high. Ponagar Tower is a typical work of Cham architectural and sculptural art. Construction techniques from the eighteenth to the thirteenth centuries are still a mystery, although many researchers have come in, and many scientific works have been done. People still do not understand how Cham people have made the 20x20cm bricks stick together on top of each other without any binder. This is the unique feature that makes visitors more interested in this tower temples.
one of the nicest Cham temple in vietnam. beautiful view of city and ocean from the top. they have loaner gowns to wear if you are not dressed for temple.
Beautiful architecture; great views of the city. Lots of tourist, try going at low times. Overall beautiful site.
As I wore a cut off T-shirt I wasn't allowed to go inside, then I had to change my upper dress and got permission to enter. Entrance fee was only 22000 dong. If you reach the top, you can see the city so nicely.
