UNIT 16: THE WONDERS OF THE WORLD
Đọc phần tóm tắt các thông tin về chuyến thăm tháp Chàm tại Nha Trang.
My visit to Nha Trang last year included a brief tour to Ponagar Cham Towers. This tower complex is one of the most beautiful examples of Cham architecture in central Vietnam.
The Ponagar Cham Towers consist of four towers. They are located on Cu Lao Marble Hill, two kilometers north of Nha Trang. They were built between the 8th and 13th centuries.
The remaining towers were dedicated to different gods. The largest one was built in honor of Lady Thien Y. The 22.5m tower contains her sandstone statue sitting on Buddha’s throne. The 2.6 statue has 10 hands, each is holding a specific object illustrating the power of Buddha.
The tour to Ponagar Cham Towers lasted 5 hours. I was rather tired but the tour was enjoyable, memorable and informative.

Man becomes man only by his intelligence, but he is man only by his heart.
