About Hoi Quan Phuoc Kien Fujian Assembly Hall In Hoi An

Hoi Quan Phuoc Kien, also known as the Fujian Assembly Hall, is an integral part of Hoi An’s cultural and historical landscape. Established in the 1690s by the Fujian Chinese Congregation, this assembly hall is a testament to the Chinese community’s rich heritage in Hoi An. Initially constructed to serve the community and worship the deity Thien Hau, the goddess of the sea, the hall has undergone various transformations over the years. Its architecture, deeply influenced by Fujian artistry, showcases an intricate design that symbolizes the harmony of the universe through its “heaven-earth-human” gate and the array of holy animal sculptures adorning its structure.

The hall is not just a place of worship but also a community center where the Fujian Chinese community would gather. The assembly hall’s premises include a courtyard filled with ornamental plants and flowers, creating a serene atmosphere for visitors. The main shrine within the hall is a sacred space dedicated to Thien Hau Holy Mother and Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, embodying the spiritual significance of the site. The presence of statues like Thien Ly Nhan and Thuan Phong Nghi further accentuates the hall’s role in safeguarding the seafarers and fishermen.

For those interested in exploring this architectural gem, the assembly hall is located at 46 Tran Phu Street, Cam Chau Ward, Hoi An City, Quang Nam Province, and is open to visitors from 8 AM to 5 PM daily. Entry to the hall is included in the Hoi An Ancient Town admission fee, which is required for all international tourists.

Another chinese clan association attraction which again is not a temple but a place to worship your ancestors who are placed here in the ancestors tablet room. It has nice classical chinese architecture. You need a ticket to enter the building.

Is a must to see in Hoi An. A very beautiful and unique masterpiece. There's lots of people all the time there but the vibe inside is fantastic and it's definitely worth visiting the place.

Totally worth it and it was a beautiful view, however if you’re here then it’s a perfect place to do all your shopping. If you’re planning for the coconut boat ride then don’t take it from road vendors, we ended up paying 120k dong instead of 500k dong just by going 10 minutes down the road haha
