Photographer's Note

Sunset in Po Klong Garai Cham Tower - Gia Lai - Viet Nam

The towers were constructed by King Jaya Simhavarman III to honour the legendary King Poklongarai (1151-1205), known as a protector and for his good deeds in developing agriculture and constructing irrigation systems. There are three brick towers: the gate tower, fire tower and the most impressive, the main tower. Over 20 metres high, the kalan or sanctuary features an exquisite relief of Shiva and carvings in the Cham language
