The Cham village in Chau Doc. In this side of the river is the crowded Chau Doc while on the other side, there are 7 peaceful Cham villages where people live mainly on weaving. Chau Giang is one of those 7 villages.
Chau Giang is situated on Phu Tan district, An Giang province which is separated from Chau Doc by a river. Chau Giang Cham village is the gathering place of many Cham people in the South of Vietnam. Different from the Cham in the central region who follow Ba Ni or Brahmanism religion, the Cham in Chau Giang follow Islam with the strict mores of the official Islamic. For example, women wear wimpls. There were some Vietnamese boaters who used to live in refugee camps in Indonesia and Malaysia followed Islamic. When they came back to Vietnam, they were not back to their hometown but arrived to live in Chau Giang.
A typical architecture of the Cham in the South is their wooden stilt house in the direction of East – West. The house is located on the rows of woods at the height of 2 or 3 meters. Below the house is the room for storage or for common living.
The village has kept the beauty of a culture and arts worshipping and architectural talented community.
