One of the larger ancient halls which has been very well maintained. There could be more historical facts displayed relating to the 'Fukian' connections in Hoi An.

Bring along a book or guide to explain what you're looking at and you'll have a much better experience, especially if you aren't well versed in the religious symbolism. Easily accessed, intricately detailed, a great experience.

Located on Tran Phu and close to the market the Fukien Assembly Room is a meeting and blessing location built by the Fukien Chinese in the 17th century.

The most interesting of Hoi An's various assembly halls, although some of the jays in cages appeared stressed. Some beautiful old bonsai and interesting artwork.

We definitely got more out of this site, and the Ancient Town generally by having a guide, I would recommend that if you want more detail and history about what you are seeing, and there was some really interesting facts to be learnt about this assembly hall. The architecture is very beautiful, and the whole area is very peaceful and... More

Found our way back to Fukian Assembly hall. Interesting place with giant spiral incense hanging from the root. Best was the photo exhibition of in a connecting house. We met the woman's brother who exhibited there. You can buy a cope of the photos at a reasonable price. Well worth it!!
