28 Cham relics in the Central Province of Phu Yen, such as the Ho Citadel, the Nhan and Ba Temples, the Dinh Market Area Steles and the remains of several temples in the Dong Tac, and Cham wells are being well looked after and preserved by Provincial authorities.

The Nhan Temple and the Ho Citadel have both been recognized as national cultural and historical relics.

Cham objects discovered in excavations over the past several decades show that the Cham culture in Phu Yen Province has similarities with other Cham sites in the Central Region.
