Constructed around 1690, "Phuc Kien" the Assembly Hall was built for the Chinese to socialize, and has been designated as a World Heritage Site. The intricately designed Assembly Hall, which was later transformed into the Jinshang Golden Mountain Temple, is dedicated to Thien Hau, the Fujian "goddess of the sea and caretakers of sailors". Childless couples offer prayers at the "fertility shrine". The entrance gate was added at a later date, and an unusual mosaic fountain sits in the courtyard.

This was a lovely place to visit with a lot of history regarding the journey of the Chianese people across the sea to Hoi An. There are pictures on the walls depicting the often treacherous journey.
The setting in a lovely courtyard makes it a lovely place to rest after walking around the streets. As well as enjoying the beautiful ornate building it is nice just to cool down in the pretty little garden

There are multiple attractions in the Old Town in Hoi An that can be visited using a single ticket purchased around the entrance to the Old Town. Fukian Assembly Hall is one of these. The place is really beautiful with wonderful bonsai and small gardens and pools outside the structure. I would definitely be sure to stop here when you visit Old Town. The entry ticket - that includes several attractions - is definitely worthwhile.

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.

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.

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.

Interesting but lacking information.. i visited on a Monday. It was fascinating in the sense that an event was going on. Looked to me like meal and raffles as people were being given prizes. Electric fans, TV… It was great to see the hall used by locals. Sadly they left cans, plastic bottles all over the floor and food everywhere on table clothes not in bowls… it was being cleaned up but boy unnecessary mess everywhere.
It looked to all be very interesting but due to absolutely no labels i sadly had no clue what i was looking at .

Ornate assembly hall with picturesque courtyard garden. This was my favourite assembly hall in Hoi An. Stop by the pond on the right after the huge gates to see a big friendly goldfish. You will need to use one of your 5 ancient town passes to enter this complex.

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!
