when i visited Quan Kong Temple last year september,it was a rainy day,so i spend lots of time here.Guan Kong was the famous general who living in the period of “Three Warring Kingdoms” ruled by Han Dynasty, China.he was brave, righteous,and worshipped by people after he passed away. Stepping inside the temple,you will see the statue of Guan Kong with a dignified face and bright eyes ahead. chinese and vietnamese worship Guan Kong as the God of justice and righteousness. just behind the Quan Kong Temple lies Quan Am Pagoda. i visited it also,it is a place for worship too. i noticed it worship Guan Yin,a Buddhist deity,but more interesting is i found a gallery of paintings here,mostly they are watercolour painting.

Quan Cong Temple was built in the 17th Century. It was dedicated to the Chinese General Quan Cong. Who is a symbol of loyalty, sincerity, integrity and justice. There is lots of paintings, statues, red horses, white horses, a stunning well maintained garden and statue of one of his guardians General Chau Xuong. Make sure to check out the rain spout on the roof in the courtyard.

We went mid day and it was not very busy. If you have an extra ticket this is a great place to use it but I wouldn’t say it is a must.

Don't forget to purchase your ticket before heading to a this stop at the Old Town Booth. The tickets includes 5 entrance fees. You have 24 hours from time of purchase to use them. It cost 120,000VND (around $7.10CAD). There are 21 sightseeing to choose from.

It would behoove anyone reviewing this page to post the correct photos of the temple. Some photos and/or reviews here are noting the wrong place. Quan Kong Temple is very small and you enter right off the sidewalk into small colorful temple. I will post the correct photo of it but it will probably get lost in all the other photos.

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 few photos shots. We enjoyed visiting this temple to escape the blistering heat. Although Hoi An has numerous similar buildings it's still worth a look if you are in the area.

The monk did not let us in. We were in shorts and t-shirt and that was not appropriate, which is absolutely ok. So make sure to take long clothes if you want to visit the temple.

Yet another gorgeous temple of HOi An. You need the "attraction" ticket to get in and since we didn;t have our tickets with us we only observed from the outside but it's still super impressive and colorful. You can't miss this temple if you are cycling around town. The temples are with a stop for photos!

Enter and walk around both temple and pagoda which will amaze you with its stunning architecture as well as some brilliant statues. The pagoda temple part will require you to remove you shoes to enter the religious section of it should you wish to pay your respects to buddha ,also included is a collection of artwork to admire by a local artist.

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 another temple", as my daughter puts it, but if you go in and look at them from the point of view of how it is built and decorated, you will see them all differently. Enjoy!

This Temple is small, but surprisingly serene.The inside boasts some neat art and 2 giant horse sculptures. There is also a large replica of a Junk boat and some sweet lanterns! This Temple is also free if you go as the sun is setting (it was when we went anyway)
