In the late 11th century and early 12th century in Phuoc Hiep Commune, Tuy Phuoc, the tower was built on top of a hill lying between two branches of Kon River, Tan An an Ganh Bridge, next to National Highway 1A, 20km away from Quy Nhon City. This is a complex consisting of 4 towers, which looks so similar to a sticky rice cake that local people call it Banh Ít Tower (Sticky rice cake tower). Upon doing researching on this complex architecture, the French called it Tour d’Argent, which means Silver Tower. Each of the four towers presents a different style and shade. In
terms of art, of all Cham towers remaining in Vietnam territory, Banh Ít complex is a unique architecture which is diverse, well-decorated and carries high artistic value. This cluster of towers is recognized by the Ministry of Culture and Information as an architectural and art vestige in 1982.
