The tower is 20m high; each side of the foot tower is 11m long. The middle gate sharp is with monsters on the top. This top is special one because it was harmonious combination of the pyramidal symbol and linga symbol; one of Cham's worships.

Nowadays, there is only a flat stone with the height of 1,30m and lotus flower carved at the foot of the stone.
