Location: Porome Tower is located in Bon Acho Hill in Hau Sanh Hamlet, Phuoc Huu Village, Ninh Phuoc District, Ninh Thuan Province.
Characteristics: This tower worships the stone statue of King Porome, which takes the form of Mukha Linga and the stone statue of Queen Bia Thanh Chanh of E De origin.



Porome Tower was built between the end of 16th century and the beginning of 17th century. Like many other typical Cham Towers, Porome Tower has a square shape with 4 stories and is 8 meters high, with a nearly 8-meter wide base, and the door, which has the special style, faces to the East. At present, there exists only the 19m-high main tower. The statue of the king is 1.2m high and made into a high relief. It is put in front of an arched tombstone decorated with small relief at the back. Behind the main tower is a small shrine dedicated to the stone statue of Queen Bia Thanh Chih of Cham origin. Though not big, the tower has a distinctive style. Porome Tower is one of very few Cham Towers which has remained virtually intact up to now, and is the place where Cham people often pray to King Porome on festival days.
