Small temple

Very nice but somewhat small temple. Inside is nicely decorated and has a very strong incense smell.

Another small place to explore with lots of history. Dating back to the 1600 it really is very old, the oldest in the area. Entry via your ancient town entry tickets, by now we were on our 2nd lot. I am ashamed to say that the shade achieved in these places at times was quite an attraction, but once inside... More

More than history so take time to soak up the evidence of skilled ancient construction and a community's dedication to beliefs which certainly have only been covertly supported over the last sixty years until recently..Buddhism is quietly reawakening and this is a small gem which is actively in use.Built in 1653 the central figue is Quan Cong an esteemed general...

I thought this place was great. It dates back to 1653 and is very brightly decorated with lots of detail. It's pretty small, but in my opinion, has a lot of character. It is part of the Hoi An sighseeing ticket scheme which costs 120,000 VND and allows you to see 5 of the places of interest that you fancy... More

A small temple richly decorated with offerings and a few statues. This is a temple that is used by locals. We were in and out in 5 minutes due to it's size. Need to buy a ticket for admission from the Tourist Information centre just a few meters away.

Not much to this. There's others that are less boring than this more boring place. In and out in less than 5 mins. Not even worth taking any photos.

We really enjoyed our visit here, it's very attractive with interesting features. Just one word of warning - if you are asthmatic, take a mask. In fact take a mask on your visit to Hoi An as you can't avoid the strong scents from the burning inscense.

Hoi An is a delightful small town full of ancient buildings and in the middle of town this colourful temple. It has been well maintained and is beautifully decorated. Stepping in is a peaceful retreat from the bustling streets outside. The town is well worth a visit but beware of mopeds they buzz around everywhere.
