The water tower was built in 1928 and completed in 1934. It was designed by architect Xuphanuvông – a royal member of Laos. Over 80 years, apart from the function of providing water for the local residents, it has also been a familiar image of the locals through many generations and became the symbol of beautiful Phan Thiet city today.
Mr. Vo Thanh Huy - Deputy Director of Binh Thuan Department of culture, sports and tourism, in the year of 2017 - 2018, Provincial Museum in collaboration with Phan Thiet city conducted a survey and agreed to protect the relic with the total area of more than 7.400 square meters. On that basis, they have built a scientific file on the relic of Phan Thiet water tower, and it has been ranked by the provincial People's Committee as a historical-cultural relic of the province. In the coming time, Phan Thiet city will soon establish the Management Board to manage, preserve and promote the value of the relic in order to serve the needs of sightseeing and research for the people and visitors.
