Three exhibitions providing visitors with an overview of Champa culture, which emerged in the late 2nd century AD, opened in Da Nang city on July 25.

The first exhibition entitled “Inscriptions and Scripts of Cham” displays documents featuring Cham writings on paper and ‘buong’ leaves, a unique material for making the paper of the Cham people as well as inscriptions on stone steles. The content of the inscriptions varied from praising the gods to extending peoples’ wishes to the gods.

The second exhibition included artefacts unearthed from archaeological excavations in Qua Giang, Phong Le and Cam Mit sites in Da Nang city, which were made of various materials including ceramic, crystal, ivory and gold. Many of the exhibits were made public for the first time.

The three exhibitions are taking place at the Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture as part of activities to mark the museum’s 100th anniversary.

The same day, a seminar on ‘Archaeology on Champa after the year 1975 and the preservation and exhibition of Champa’ opened at the museum, attracting many scholars, archaeologists and cultural researchers.
