Hoi Khanh Temple is a Buddhist temple in Vietnam. It is located in the south of the country in the province of Binh Duong, in the city of Thủ Đầu Một. Hoi Khanh Temple was built in 1741. It stands in a quiet place surrounded by a lot of trees, mainly eucalyptus trees over 100 years old, which were planted shortly after the construction of the temple. Hoi Khanh Temple had been reconstructed and rebuilt several times in the past. The pulpit and sanctuary were restored in 1917, the western sanctuary in 1984, the main hall in 1990 to 1991. Gradually all the historic statues were restored. In the main hall tourists can see a display of statues of Gautama Buddha, Ksitigarbha and others.
