The restoration of the Tang Family Chapel demonstrates the commendable commitment of private individuals to cooperate with local authorities in the conservation of a World Heritage property. As one of the key landmarks in Hoi An, the family chapel has been competently repaired by specialists and craftsmen who are knowledgeable about traditional construction techniques. The project has employed a minimum intervention approach that emphasizes respect for the historic building materials and finishes. The newly-refurbished chapel now stands out as a living landmark in the heritage town, serving clan members, the local population and visitors alike.
