Cham tower ruins pulled from bowels of construction

A Cham tower structure was found last week while local workers were leveling a road surface for the base of the new industrial complex in the central province of Quang Ngai.

The ancient structure is estimated to have several towers adjoining each other. The gates of the tower face southeast, toward the Ve River. Neither the age nor the exact year they collapsed have been established.
