The Chindia Tower is a tower in the Curtea Domnească monuments ensemble in Târgovişte, Romania, built in the 15th century. The tower was begun during the second reign of Prince Vlad III the Impaler over Wallachia, taking its final form during the 19th century. It initially had a military purpose, but during history it has been used as a guard point, a fire spotter and for storing and protecting the state treasury. Between 1847 and 1851, the Chindia Tower was completely restored by Gheorghe Bibescu, who added 5 metres to its height. The building in its current form has a height of 27 metres and a diameter of 9 metres.The Chindia Tower, the most important tourist attraction in Târgovişte, is considered the city’s symbol; the tower elements are present in the city’s emblem, at the top and also at the bottom. As a monument, the tower now houses an exhibition of documents, weapons and objects which belonged to Vlad the Impaler. Today, the tower is administered by the National Museum Curtea Domnească.
