The Chinese general, Quan Cong, was known for his loyalty, sense of justice, integrity and compassion. So it makes sense that one of Hoi An’s most magnificent temples was erected in his honor. Visitors can wander through the towering gold and red entryways and wind through numerous rows of houses that make this temple unique. Bright and brilliant alters pay homage to the much-loved leader, while Zen-inspired gardens and sunny outdoor pathways provide peaceful escape from city streets and offer visitors opportunity for quiet meditation in one of Hoi An’s most-loved architectural and religious structures.
Quan Cong temple is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and located in Tran Phu Town Center. Don’t miss the life-size statue of the general’s famous white horse.
