Chien Dan Tower – Quang Nam

Chien Dan Cham Tower is situated in Tam An Commune, about 5km from the city of Tam Ky, Quang Nam Province; 60km south of Da Nang City. This is a group of three single Cham towers built in the 11th or 12th century, and dedicated to three deities of the Champa Kingdom: Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma.

The door of these three towers all points to the East. Their foundations are all square in shape, wide-based with narrow steps to the top. There isn’t decoration on the body of the towers, but on the top of the towers were decorated an edging line with many masks of Kala.

At the site of the Chien Dan Cham Tower, there is an exhibition room displaying many sculptured artifacts, including many high valuable statues, especially the Yoni alter and “human animal” statues such as Naga snake, Hamsa grouse, Garuda Bird, Gajasiha elephant…

Most researchers classified Chien Dan sculptural works in Chanh Lo Style (11th century to early 12th century).
