Located at the northeast corner of Phan Chu Trinh streets in Hoi An, the Tran family shrine was built about 200 years ago by members of the extended Tran clan.
The Tran house is made of precious wood and situated in the middle of a 1,500 sq m garden with high surrounding walls and a gate.
Ornamental plants, flowers, fruit trees and several century-old plants are grown in the front.
The architecture of the house bears the Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese styles, and it has remained almost the same as two centuries ago. The Tran family has lived in Vietnam for over 300 years, but traces its ancestors to China.
The building is presently open to visitors.
