It is not unlikely for the country of Vietnam to have places of worship and in this trip we were able to visit one called the Po Sah Inu Cham Towers which some of the locals call as “The Little Angkor Wat of Vietnam”. This is due to its structure similar to the small parts of the ruins of the Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

ABOUT PO SAH INU CHAM TOWERS

  • Every Lunar New Year, the locals (following Hinduism) still perform ceremonies by the towers as a way to pray for luck.

  1. Is the cost of entrance you stated is equivalent if vietnamese dong? Nevertheless, this place place is also promising.

  2. I hope the leaflets are written in English for easy comprehension. Anyway, that’s another spot to remember when touring in Vietnam. Hoping I can go there with the family.

  3. When I travel I also look for underrated places, one that you can really share on your blog because of its natural uniqueness/ beauty, not because of hype or popularity.

    Thanks for sharing this, I’ve been eyeing to visit Vietnam and will include this in my list in the future.

  4. Vietnam is one of the places I dream of traveling when I finally have the chance. Those sites look so fascinating. I would love to touch the walls of Poh Sa Inu (will we be allowed to do that?) And we’d brave DIY as well. I just hope we don’t run into those scamming rides and stuff that I’ve read about in other blogs..
