We only saw this from the outside and it seemed fairly small. With limited time we visited some of the others but this one looked pretty attractive and compact. Attractive colours and I understand this was built in the 17th century. It certainly fits well within the ancient town of Hoi An.

Quan Kong Temple is located at 168 Tran Phu St. The Temple was constructed in 1653 & named after a Chinese general from the Han Dynasty who celebrated numerous military victories. The entrance fee is by the tourist ticket. The Temple has been lovingly restored & preserved over many years. The colours of the temple are striking & worth a... More

Just average at best to be honest. From the choices of attractions with the old city ticket, I wouldn't strongly advise choosing this one, but they all seemed to be similar.

This place was busy, but large enough to find your own little corner to contemplate. Colorful and photogenic.

Yes ..... just another temple! Seen one seen them all! This is so NOT true. Each temple is fascinating, actually amazing, Quan Kong included. They really are quite individual, each one has its distinct characteristics, structure and design. The ornate decorations and architecture is a work of art on its own. I can understand that another temple is "OMG, not... More

A very nice and beautiful temple. Red and dragon is the main design of this temple. Vietnamese people always believe the dragon always bring the good thing for people for the rich life with fully food and gold. Nice temple with free entrance fee.

A serene and beautiful temple in the center of town. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you are already headed to some of the other sites nearby.

This is a Buddhist temple and is obviously well attended by locals and visitors alike. It is set in a quiet, colourful garden filled with statues. Inside the temple are the statues of Buddha with offering on the alters. All the signs were in Vietnamese, I would have appreciated some information in English, maybe a sheet or book or even... More

A compact temple dating as far back at 1653. It has a lovely courtyard with a rock garden, nice plants and a pond stocked with turtles and fish. Behind this are cases containing two generals staring at each other and a couple of white horse sculptures.

One of the quirks of religion is to worship your ancestors and not any particular deity. The Quan Kong Temple in Hoi An, also known as Ong Pagoda, was built for the benefit of sea farers to worship their ancestors. The temple is reported to be over three hundred years old. There is an excessive hint of Chinese architecture as... More
