Nha Trang once was populated by the ancient Cham people, whose empire spanned most areas of south-central Vietnam and into parts of Cambodia and Laos, before becoming a major tourist destination. Therefore, there are a large number of ancient ruins of the Cham temples still standing in some places in Vietnam, including Nha Trang with the Po Nagar Temple.

The Po Nagar temple resides on its own ‘island’ and overlooks the spectacular skyline of the city beyond the Xom Bong Bridge, as one of the most beautifully restored Cham temples in Vietnam. Here, travelers still can witness locals pray at the location, and in front of the temple entrances, incense is always burning in large bowls, which are called bat huong.
