Champa Dynasty

Some of the original Cham buildings can still be visited in the Vietnamese countryside. The most important remaining sites include My Son near Da Nang, Po Nagar near Nha Trang, and Po Klaung Garai near Phan Rang.

The original Chams were probably colonists from the Indonesian islands, who adopted as their principal vocations those of trade, shipping, and piracy.

Their cities were ports of call on important trade routes linking India, China and the Indonesian islands.

Champa kingdom flourished all along the central and southern coast of Vietnam for roughly a thousand years between 500-1500 AD.

It was principally a coastal civilization involved in shipping & trade.

The history of the Champa Kingdom was one of intermittent conflict and cooperation with the people of Java, the Khmer of Cambodia and the Dai Viet in northern Vietnam.

Unfortunately much of the classical Cham art that once existed has been lost to the ravages of time and human vandals, looters, and conquerors.

The Cham kings have left us stone inscriptions describing the gifts of now lost precious objects they made to the shrines and sanctuaries of the realm.

Noteworthy here was their practice of donating decorated metallic sleeves (kosa) and diadems (mukuta) to the divinities with which they were affiliated.

One such Cham Kosa has survived and it is crafted in the face of Siva as can be identified by the third eye in the center of the forehead.

Champa was an Indic civilization that flourished along the coasts of what is now central and southern Vietnam for roughly a one thousand-year period between 500 and 1500 AD.

The history of Champa was one of intermittent conflict and cooperation with the people of Java, the Khmer of Angkor in Cambodia and the Đại Việt of what is now northern Vietnam.

It was to the Đại Việt that Champa finally lost its independence.

The artistic legacy of Champa consists primarily of sandstone sculptures – both sculpture in the round and relief sculpture – and brick buildings.

Some metal statues and decorative items have also survived.

Much of the remaining art expresses religious themes, and though some pieces would have been purely decorative, others would have served important functions in the religious life of the Chams, which synthesized elements of Hinduism (especially Saivism), Buddhism and indigenous cults.

This artistic legacy has been decimated by neglect, war, and vandalism. Much of the damage has been done in the 20th century.

Some French scholars such as Henri Parmentier and Jean Boisselier were able to take photographs, create drawings, and pen descriptions of works which have been destroyed in the meantime.

Neglect continues to endanger the legacy of Champa to this day, especially the neglect of the inscribed stone steles, the source of much valuable information on the history of Champa.

Smaller collections of Cham art may be found in the Museum of Fine Arts in Saigon and the Museum of Fine Arts in Hanoi.

The largest collection of Cham art is on exhibit at the Museum of Cham Sculpture in Da Nang. Substantial collections are housed in the Guimet Museum in Paris, the Museum of Vietnamese History in Saigon, and the Museum of History in Hanoi.

The early 14th-century Chinese historian Ma Duanlin reported the existence of a large statue of the Buddha made of gold and silver; the current whereabouts of this statue are unknown.

The Cham kings themselves have left us stone inscriptions describing the gifts of now lost precious objects they made to the shrines and sanctuaries of the realm.

Especially noteworthy was the practice of donating decorated metallic sleeves (kosa) and diadems (mukuta) to important lingas and the divinities with which they were affiliated.

Apsaras’ dance is an essential part of the Khmer culture which finds its roots in both Hindu and Buddhist mythologies.

Apsara dance is a traditional dance of the Kingdom of Cambodia that dates back to the 7th century according to some of the carvings found at the Sambor Prei Kuk temples (Cambodia’s Kompong Thom province) which immortalised Apsaras dancing on the stone.
