Po Nagar in Nha Trang
Nha Trang is best known as beach resort town, however, at the northern end of the main town is a historical site of huge significance: Po Nagar Temple. The recorded history of Po Nagar dates back to an inscription on a stone tablet dated 781 AD, although the temple is likely to have existed for some prior time to this date. Po Nagar was created by the Cham people, who were a prominent force in South East Asia from around the 6th Century to 15th Century. The origins of the Cham people are not known certain. One theory is that they came to mainland South East Asia from Borneo. The Cham people had a complex set of beliefs incorporating influences from Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam. Po Nagar temple is dedicated to the Goddess Po Nagar who doesn’t exist in any of the major known religions but is similar in appearance to the Hindu Goddess Durga.
Po Nagar Cham Temple in Nha Trang
Po Nagar Temple is a very well preserved historical site and arguably the best of the many Cham temples in Vietnam. The temple has many parts with shrines to a variety of deities including Ganesh and the Lord Buddha. This may be because the temple was continually added to over the years with the most recent additions dating back to the 17th Century and the beliefs of the Cham people developed over time in parallel with changes in religious beliefs across South East Asia as a whole. Aside from the cultural and religious significance, the four main towers are magnificent and architectural masterpieces in their own right. Po Nagar is a must see attraction on a trip to Vietnam.
