    Large and beautifully maintained
    You can buy a ticket for 60k Dong which gives you entry to 5 attractions. This is one of the ones we visited. It's located on a very large site and beautifully maintained. Surprising that more people don't make the effort to visit because it's right in the Old Quarter. Well worth a visit.

    Beautiful architecture
    I’ve never been to Chinese Buddhist assembling hall. The architecture is very beautiful! It was built to please Goddess of the Sea. I loved bonsai flowering trees in front! So beautiful and well kept!

    Striking colors can be seen regardless of where you look. There is a sense of serenity when inside this complex. Lots of symbolism. You can paid to light a circular cone incense that burns for two week. Deep inside are 3 altars. If you wish to make more money, pray at the one on the left. If you have trouble starting a family (fertility problems), pray at the one on the right.

    assembly hall for Fukian immigrants
    many Fujian( Fukian) families migrated to Vietnam after Ming Dynasty collapsed, Lord Nguyen allowed them to settle in Hoi An and erect Minh Huong Village. so Fujian immigrants established the Fujian Assembly Hall to serve the fellow community here.i visited the hall on 9 September, actually it is the second time i came here,the first time is 2019. the hall has been devoted to the worship of their ancestors and a deity called Thien Hau. Thien Hau, known as Mazu or Tian Hou, is a Chinese sea goddess who blesses fishers and sailors with safe ocean travel.that day very hot,cuz i visited here around 1300 pm, i have to rest under the tree,also bought a bottle of mineral water to cool down my body temperature.so suggest those who want to come, better come before noon.

This was one of the best attractions we visited in Hoi An. Beautiful architecture with amazing decorations inside. The fountain at the entrance is stunning.

This is one of the Chinese immigrants house in Hoi An. It was very interesting to see so many helical incense hanging from the ceiling and many bags of rices piled up for donations. The building is pretty, too.

During our walk of Old Town Hoi An, we stopped to learn about and view the facility. The floral and trees were beautifully landscaped. I’ve never seen such large hanging incense cones!

Visited here using our old town ticket, nicely kept and clean and also burning incense (which gave me a head ache) just too much of it everywhere. They all start to blur as they are so similar, but this had a cool dragon statue. My teenage boys not interested.

If you've seen other temples in the area, this one is not that different, however the colour makes it nice to visit
