Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture Reviews
박물관 규모가 크진 않은데 힌디와 관련된 다양한 유물, 조각상들이 전시되어 있어요. 힌디 관련 유물들이 어떻게 생겼는지 궁금하시면 잠깐 시간내서 다녀와도 좋을 것 같아요 more »The museum exhibits a wide variety of artifacts and sculptures related to the large-scale de hindy. If you're curious about what hindy artifacts look like, it's a good time to go.
彫刻に興味もあったのですが、暑さからの退避も思っていったので失敗でした。冷房は入ってなかったです。。 あまりの暑さに自分の調子が悪くなり、あまりしっかりみることができず残念です。 more »I was interested in sculpture, but it was a failure because I thought about the evacuation from heat. The air conditioner was not included. I am sorry that I am not able to see too much of my condition because of the heat.

Not sure how often this get puts on my most people's itinerary. If you're into sculpture and ancient civilisations, then it might be worth a visit. The Cham civilisation was a lesser known empire that dominated a region in SE Asia, particularly Cambodia and Vietnam, for a period in history. They were a very distinct culture, seperate to others in Far Asian history, with unique imagery, motifs, and mythology which often drew on Hindu traditions from India. I honestly didn't know much about them and this museum provided a great deal of insight into their world. It found it a great primer for the Angkor temples when we got to Cambodia a week later. My only gripe was lack air conditioning but maybe I should have checked my privilege at the door along with my reasonably price entrance fee...
