Cam Pho Temple
Holiday Travel Guide

Cam Pho Temple which includes a temple or place of worship, religious aspects and heritage architecture

Marvel at an impressive banyan tree and admire the colorful façades of this intriguing temple in the heart of the city.

The Cam Pho Temple is a charming, old religious structure that has long been a major part of Hội An’s culture and history. Trees, flowers and water stations decorate the elegant courtyards of this prestigious complex. Inspect the range of animal statues that adorn the interior of the temple.

Capture photos of the bright yellow exterior walls of the various buildings in this temple complex. The site is fairly uncrowded, allowing you to explore it at your own leisure. Rest beside the scenic banyan tree that stands in the courtyard. Gaze up at the intricate carvings of the sloping roof.

Notice the elegant engravings on the wooden pillars inside the temple and see a large traditional gong. Imagine the loud percussion from this instrument spreading through spacious rooms filled with various pots and statues.

Sit at one of the wooden benches facing an altar. From the wooden beams of the ceiling hang stylish paper chandeliers. Enjoy the serenity in this tranquil ecclesiastical center. Attend the Xuan Ky Thu Te festival that takes place in the middle of January and August. These solemn and elegant events celebrate springtime and harvest.

Note that the temple’s construction date is unknown, but records state it was restored in 1817 and 1897. It is sometimes identified as a communal house, although it better resembles a traditional temple and was built to worship the old village’s guardian deity. Pay a small fee to enter the temple or purchase tickets in the historic center for access to this and multiple other Hội An Old Town sites. It opens daily from morning until late afternoon. Make your way through the busy streets beside this complex to see other temples, restaurants and shops.

Find the Cam Pho Temple in the western part of Hội An’s central district. It is just north of the Thu Bôn River and Sông Hoài Square. Visit nearby attractions, such as the Nhà thò Tin Lành Evangelical church, the Phung Hung old house and the Japanese covered bridge.
