It's a lovely little temple and worth checking out if you have the time. Many other temples I've come across are these huge grand affairs that are meant to wow you. This one feel more intimate, more personal. Nevertheless, if you've been to numerous temples around China or SE Asia and you're expecting that 'wow' factor or something about the... More

The temple can be visited if you have the time . Nothing special and good sight for people who have not visited other temples in SE Asia of similar kind.

Wow, wow, wow. This is a great temple complex, with beautiful stonework and sculptures, and interesting suspended incense burners. I highly recommend.

This is another of the smaller temples to visit in the old town of Hoi An. The temple itself is fairly small but there are some attached rooms out the back which add to the interest factor.

We arrived in Hoi An and we're walking through the Old Town on November 9th, just after the U.S. Presidential election was called for Donald Trump. We felt awful! Visiting Quan Kong Temple provided us with a bit of peace and quiet to collect ourselves. We even bought a prayer coil of incense to hang and light so we could... More

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
