Cham Architecture in Viet Nam

Arvind Kumar Singh

Abstract


Vietnam, situated in the eastern part of Southeast Asia, a tropical region of monsoons, is a point of convergence for various ethnic groups and a crossroads of different cultures and civilizations. With fifty-four ethnic groups that have been identified here, it is really a microcosm of South Asia. Among the ethnic groups, Champa is one of oldest existing ethnic-groups that have contributed to the development of the state. Champa has gifted Vietnam with a treasure of extremely valuable and really unique cultural heritage,
including ancient and respectful towers, solid citadels, vast areas of temples and palaces, concentrated hand-made bricks, ceramics, stoves, multi-superposed residential vestiges, deeply-dug wells – many with influences from ancient-India.
