    Charming!
    A small site but captivating. There are a few small temples within the compound as well as a small exhibition room. Entry fee is cheap. Definitely a must do if you are staying in Nha Trang city.

    Nice stop over the bridge from the center.
    Nice stop over the bridge from the center. Entry cost a little over 1 USD. Arrived around noon which was peak time with large crowds but still an enjoyable break on the way north to other places.

    Great place to stop
    thap ba Ponagar Temple is a great place to stop by for a quick photo shoot on your way back from a motorcycle ride. There are many foreigners and locals, and motorcycle parking is free. You need to buy a ticket to enter, but the price is negligible. I saw a performance here and it was very good. The temple has a tremendous amount of energy. Of course, this is a personal opinion, but a trip to this magical and ancient place is definitely worth your time.

    Nice historic temple
    This is a must-visit place. Quite unique and brown in color. The temples are still active. Can see people praying and incent stick burns. Do take off your shoes, if you planning to go in and perform prayers or burn incent sticks.

    A great piece of ancient history
    We had already visited Me Son from Hoi An and were very interested in the Cham history. We walked to the towers (Ponagar Temple) from Nha Trang and enjoyed the experience. The towers were obviously similar to Me Son and well worth the visit. Any repairs were done to blend in well. Very low cost entry fee. Not too many people when we visited. A must visit!

    Fantastic destination
    Thap Ba Ponagar is a fantastic destination for tourists to explore in Nha Trang. The entrance fee is affordable, and despite its size, it offers excellent opportunities for photography and cultural exploration. Additionally, visitors can enjoy a captivating cultural dancing performance scheduled at specific times, which is offered free of charge.

    A coastal gem with charm
    We loved visiting the Po Nagar Cham Towers – it was such a cool mix of history and beautiful scenery. The intricate brickwork and carvings on the towers were really impressive, and the whole place had a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere. Being set up on a hill overlooking the coast, we got some seriously stunning panoramic views of Nha Trang! We loved that it was a bit outside the bustle of the city, and it felt like a hidden treasure. It's a great spot to soak up some culture and enjoy the gorgeous Vietnamese coastline.

When we arrived at 10:00 in the morning, the area was overly packed with visitors. It opens to visitors at 8:00 am, so if you want to escape the lines, I suggest arriving early.
