Thus, the Cham who followed Hinduism from India had carved lots of Hindu statues to reflect the culture. Moreover, they also built lots of Hindu temples across the country. Until the French came and found out thousands of valuable Hindu sculptures to mankind. So, they established the museum in 19th century to preserve them.
