More information

Nha Trang is a city in Vietnam and is the capital of the province of Khánh Hòa. Nha Trang has about 520,000 inhabitants. The main sources of existence are fishing and tourism. It is 8 hours drive from Ho Chi Minh City and is also known as one of the best places in Vietnam for snorkeling and diving. At the beginning of the 19th century, Dr Alexandre Yersin, an important biologist who discovered the pathogen that caused the plague in 1894, later made a vaccine against the plague with the aid of this pathogen. The Pasteur Institute, the research center that Dr. Yersin was in charge of, still exists. Part of this institute is now the Musée Pasteur, dedicated to the life of this special man who has meant a lot. The majority of the population depends on a Buddhist movement. In the city there are therefore numerous Buddhist buildings, such as the Thap Ba Cham Temple dedicated to the Buddhist priest Ponagar. Or the Long Son Pagoda with the beautiful 14 meter high white Buddha. This is partly a monument erected for a number of monks who burned themselves as a protest against the then South Vietnamese Diem regime. Traces of the Kingdom of Champa can also be found. This people, who settled in central Vietnam from the year 200, dominated this area until the 10th century. The roots of this people are Indonesian, the Cham were partly Buddhist and partly Hindu. Nha Trang was the last city that remained in the hands of the Cham for a long time, so there are many buildings from this period, especially in this area. The Po Nagar, a Hindu building a little to the north of Nha Trang is perhaps the most impressive with many towers, halls and statues.
