  Inside Hainan Assembly Hall
by balhannah

Built in 1851, the Assembly Hall of the Hainan Chinese Congregation is a memorial to 107 merchants from Hainan Island who were mistaken for pirates and killed in Quang Nam province during the reign of Emperor Tu Duc. The elaborate dais contains plaques to their memorY, and infront of the central altar is a fine gilded woodcarving of Chinese court life. These Chinese served the community and organised Hainan religious activities.

Entry to all historical sites in Hoi An is via a coupon system, where VND75,000 gets you a ticket that can be used to enter five attractions: one museum, one assembly hall, the handicraft workshop or the traditional theatre, and either the Japanese Bridge or the Guangong Temple. Tickets are sold at various entry points into the old town.
