Photographer's Note

The group of Poshanu Cham tower temples are situated on BaNai hill top at PhuHai commune, about 7 Km North - East of PhanThiet city. From the end of the eighth century to the beginning of the ninth century, they were constructed in the manner of HoaLai art architecture - one of Champa Kingdom's ancient art architectural manners, but now there are only very a few of these tower temples left such as some ruins in MySon Holy Land area, HoaLai group (PhanRang) and PoDam one (TuyPhong - BinhThuan) left and only the group of Poshanu Cham tower temples are comparatively integral.
Poshanra is the group of Cham tower temples with the important role among BinhThuan's Cham architectural places of historical interest, from the architectural form to the building technique and art decoration on the body, the rolling domes, the main doors and false ones inside and up to the top. Only the building technique and art decoration on the tower body can evoke quite specific aesthetic factor of HoaLai manner.
