Cham museum


The Cham Museum  was founded by The French School of Far East (EFEO) in Danang to collect the sculptures which was discovered at archaeological sites in the area: My Son, Tra Kieu, Binh Dinh and Khuong My.

 


Built in 1915, the museum boasts the worldwide richest collection of Champa sculptures dating from the 7th throughout the 15th centuries. It should also make a great hideaway from the midday heat in the city, as it is open over the afternoon.


Cham museum displays 297 works (stone statues) attributed to Chams. The Cham is an ethnic group from India who settled in the highlands of Central Vietnam from the second century AD. Therefore, visitors might find pieces inspired by Hinduism. The presented objects are mainly from the seventh and fifteenth centuries.
