Thousands of Cham people in the south central provinces of Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan gathered at temples and towers on September 28 to celebrate the traditional festival of Kate.

In Ninh Thuan province, the festival took place at the Po Klong Garai Temple in Phan Rang City and Po Rome Temple in Ninh Phuoc district. Meanwhile, in Binh Thuan province, the festival was held at the Po Sah Inu Tower in Phan Thiet City.

The festival offers visitors a chance to enjoy unique folk songs, dances and music with the Cham people, as well as the chance to participate in games and demonstrations of brocade weaving and pottery.
