The ancient Champa kingdom: History and culture

Champa is an ancient kingdom that developed and flourished in central Vietnam. It was formerly a neighboring country of the Dai Viet and an integral part of the modern Vietnamese Fatherland. During its heyday, Champa culture spread throughout the North Central and South Central provinces, from the Central Coast to the Truong Son-Central Highlands. This presentation will cover three major points: To begin, provide an overview of the formation, development, and decline of the ancient kingdom of Champa from the second to the nineteenth centuries. Second, introduce some of Champa’s most distinctive cultural assets, including the temple system (My Son Sanctuary, Po Nagar Tower…), ancient citadels (Tra Kieu citadel, Do Ban citadel…), architecture, and sculpture. Thirdly, describe contemporary Cham communities and contemporary Cham cultural characteristics in southern Vietnam.
