At the heart of "Hôi An Ancient Town", an ornated gate will certainly catch your attention. This is the entering gate to "Fukian Assembly Hall"! It dates from the late 17th century and its main objective was to be a meeting point for Chinese immigrants from Fujian province living in Hôi An. Years later, the Chinese goddess of the seas and protector of sailors, "Thien Hau Thanh Mau", was enshrined at its main hall and, thus, it became known and revered as "Phuc Kien Temple". "Fukian Assembly Hall" is famous for the refined colorful Chinese style present in its gates, courtyards, buildings and ponds. Check the sacred characters, beautiful statues and images, bronze bells, old drums and lacquered works of art. And remember, "Hôi An Ancient Town" is, since 1999, a Unesco appointed "World Heritage Site"! Take your time, visit the temple and burn an incense with your name written in Chinese characters on it. May "Thien Hau Thanh Mau" bless your visit to the enchanted Hôi An! Unmissable! Enjoy!

What a treat this was after lunch. The Fukian Assembly Hall is beautiful. Very colourful. Built by Fujian businessmen in or around 1690, the first thing you will notice is the smell of incense. There are large coiled incense rings, that can burn for a whole month. You can pay to have one in your name, and have the satisfaction that it will still be burning when you have returned home from your holiday. It is a fantastic place to spend a few hours in.

This assembly hall is very unique and stunning to look at. It has tons of statues, bells, drums and works of art. It has large ornate gates, colourful courtyard and buildings, fountains with fish swimming about and Chinese engravings.

I was built around 1690 and functioned as a traditional assembly hall for the Chinese from Fujian China. It was then later transformed into a temple dedicated to the goddess of the sea.

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.

I recommended making the Fujian Assembly Hall one of them!

The hall was established by a group of Fujian businessmen (from Fujian Province in China) around 1690. So I say Fujian! We were there for the new year burning of the incense coils which made the air heavy with its smell.

One of the most beautiful locations in Hoi An Old Town, this place definitely deserves a visit for its gorgeous detailing on the buildings, for its magnificent courtyard filled with bonsai that all deserve a closer look, and especially for the main hall, ceiling hanging heavy with tons of spirals of incense smoldering slowly, scenting the air with their smoky-yet-delicate aroma. Put this assembly hall at the top of your list.

This is one of the nicest buildings in Hoi An, it definitely should be on your list to see. We were there when there weren’t too many other visitors and were able to enjoy it with some serenity and peace. Lots of interesting things to see.

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
