Fujian Assembly Hall
One of the five assembly halls in Hoi An town centre, the Fujian Assembly Hall (also known as Phuc Kien) was built to serve as a place of worship and socialisation for the traders coming from Fujian, China.
The 300-year old assembly hall has now been transformed into a temple dedicated to the goddess Thien Hau, the steward of the sea and the protector of sailors. Considered as a World Heritage Site, the Fujian Assembly Hall bears the traditional details found in Chinese assembly halls — ornate gates, a majestic garden, and dragon statues. Inside, tourists are given the chance to have a glimpse of the beliefs of Fujian people — powerful gods and goddesses are represented in statues, murals, paintings, and lacquered boards. The Fujian Assembly Hall is a popular destination during the different Chinese festivals, thanks to the activities held in it.
Fujian Assembly Hall is located at 46 Tran Phu Street, Hoi An, Vietnam.
