Why Quang Trieu (Cantonese) Assembly Hall is special ?

It was built in 1885 by Chinese overseas who came from Guangdong/ Cantonese (China). This hall is quite ornate and colorful. All of the building materials were completed in China, brought here, and then reassembled. On the early days, the house was dedicated to Thien Hau Holy Mother, then to Quan Cong, and then to the sages who came from Guangdong Formerly. It was a place for Chinese fishermen and traders to rest temporarily and to exchange goods. In those days, there was a wharf at the front of the house.



Tecords say this hall was built by the Chinese Cantonese merchants. The different parts of the building are separately made in China. After finishing the work, those parts were transferred here and joined together to build the The Quang Trieu (Cantonese) Assembly Hall in Hoi An.

What to explore at Quang Trieu (Cantonese) Assembly Hall?

The complex of Quang Trieu Assembly Hall is rather attractive, with its stone three-entrance gate and four rows of stone pillars at the front. Four Chinese characters, meaning “Quang Trieu Assembly Hall”, are embossed on the upper part of the three-entrance gate. The gate is roofed with green tube-tiles and decorated with images of dragons, small lions, and lemon flowers. Stone pillars supporting the roof are carved with refined designs. The robust frame and decorative designs make the house look imposing


The Assembly Hall holds an amazing fountain that features a dragon. The dragon is a beautiful creation made out of pottery. Besides that, there are more attractions waiting for you inside the Quang Trieu (Cantonese) Assembly Hall in Hoi An. Various Cantonese statues are spread out all over the hall. Some of these statues reflect the musical dramas of the Cantonese culture. In the Assembly Hall, many ancient vestiges have been preserved – a four big horizontal lacquered boards, a big bronze censer, a pair of Chinese terra-cotta seats and noteworthy documents on the Chinese community living in Hoi An.

Loved this place - more for the ornate dragon sculpture in the outer garden and painting on the back wall - stunning

This Clan Hall is one of Hoi Ann's finest! We enjoyed the cool carvings that exist all over the place. Inside the temple there are some really large painted sculptures, and an amazing mosaic dragon. The temple also has unique cone shaped prayer/offering devices hanging from the ceiling, a feature we'd never seen in a temple before.Tip! We went as the sun was starting to set and got in for free. This tip was true of many places in Hoi An!

I think we were a little jaded with Chinese temples and Assembly halls by the time we got here, as we found it to be so-so. Architecturally, it's not as nice as the Phu Kien Hall, but it'd be interesting for those of Chinese/cantonese ancestry as they'd recognise some of their deities like Tien Hau, the Goddess of the Sea.

This is another fantastic temple in Hoi An. Amazing building and patio! The incense is in the air and you can transport yourself to another time in the past...
