    Phuoc An Hoi Quan Pagoda

    by JohanIsWeg Written Dec 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Phuoc An Hoi Quan is richly ornamented with tiny porcelain figures, exquisite wood carvings and ceremonial brass articles. Like Nghia An Hoi Quan, this pagoda is dedicated to the great general Quan Cong. His sacred steed guards the entrance where followers make offerings and stroke his mane before departing on a journey.

    Similar to Thien Hau, ceramic friezes lavishly decorate the roofline. Inside, long coils of incense spiral from the roof. The resulting smoke may bother sensitive eyes and throats.

    The temple is open from 7am to 5.30pm.

    Phuoc An Hoi Quan Pagoda

    Built by Ho Chi Minh City's Fujian community, this pagoda in the Chinatown district of Cholon was constructed in 1902 and is one of the most beautifully decorated in the city. The pagoda is especially well known for its vast collection of figurines, carvings and hanging lanterns. Dedicated to Quan Cong, many Vietnamese visit this pagoda before embarking on a journey as a visit here is believed to bring good luck.

    Phuoc An Hoi Quan Temple

    Phuoc An Hoi Quan Temple is an impressive little temple off a quiet residential street. The temple itself is squashed in between other buildings giving it a very small look from the outside. Inside it is impressive, full of people and burning incense.
