At the Bendigo Joss House Temple you can discover more about the Chinese migrants who came to Bendigo in search of gold so long ago.

The Bendigo Joss House Temple, a Chinese place of worship, was constructed in the late 1860s. Standing for over a century, the Bendigo Joss House Temple is one of the few remaining buildings of its type in Australia. It comprises a Caretaker's Residence, Temple and Ancestral Hall.

The main temple is dedicated to Guan-Di, the god of war and prosperity. The Chinese saw Guan-Di as a wise judge, guide, protector and provider of wealth and prosperity.

Constructed with locally hand-made bricks and painted red, symbolising the traditional Chinese colour denoting strength and vitality, the Bendigo Joss House Temple is an important part of Bendigo's cultural history.
