Kuan Yu

Kuan Yu�s   Temple


Kuan Yu�s is situated on Nguyen Trai Street in Dstrict 5, HCM City. It was built in 1840 and is dedicated to Quan Thanh De Quan (the god of War), who was one of the generals in the three-kingdom period of ancient China.  It is a meeting place for Chaozhou people.


The God of War was one of the best known Chinese historical figures and was a military general under the warlord Liu Bei during the late Eastern Han Dynasty and three Kingdoms period in ancient China. He played a significant role in the civil war that led to the collapse of the Han Dynasty and the establishment of the Kingdom of Shu, of which Liu Bei was the first emperor.


Kuan Yu�s was built according to the �Quoc� typeface with perpendicular closed rows of houses. The temple roof has three levels where the central one is higher than the two sides.


The thurification ceremony of the God of War takes place on the 24th of the fourth lunar month and the fifteenth of the first lunar month. The festival lasts ten days.
