Yang Prong Tower

Today, this is one of the magnets of Vietnam tourism, attracting a plethora of researchers and visitors from everywhere in the world.

The only Cham Tower in Vietnam's Central Highlands, Yang Prong Tower is situated in Ea Sup District, 100km away from Buon Ma Thuot City. 

It was built at the end of the 13th century to worship the God Siva to wish for a peaceful and happy life. 

Located by the bank of Ea Hleo River, Yang Prong Tower is an architectural construction of red ceramic bricks resting on a foundation made of blue marble stones. 

The tower is 9m high with a square-shaped base. Even though it looks like there are four entrances, in fact, the tower has only one gate facing the East, which is referred to as the kingdom of the Gods. 

The other three “doors” are located in the three other sides of the towers and they are all artificial. 

Unlike the designs of many other Cham towers in central Vietnam, the upper part of Yang Prong is expanded into a giant cone-shaped roof, from which visitors can see the view of the wondrous scenery of the Central Highlands.

Coming to Yang Prong Tower, you will experience a unique and rare feeling of being in another world.
