Recognized by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism as a national art – architectural relic, Nhan tower was built over 800 years ago as the worshipping place for the ancient Cham people. It is hence also called Cham Tower by the locals. Countless flamingos (or Nhan) used to flock to the mountain in the old days, so the tower was also called Nhan Tower. It was almost ruined during the French domination and then rebuilt under the reign of Ngo Dinh Diem. The tower is over 65 feet high. It looks mysterious and beguiling at night with impressive illumination. The shape is unique with lotus flowers carved around the bottom and the top looks like a tern. The interesting thing about its structure is that it allows tourists to have a great view of the city from the ground floor underneath the tower.
