Bendigo Joss House Temple

Bendigo Joss House Temple

Bendigo Joss House TempleThe Bendigo Joss House Temple, a Chinese place of worship, was constructed in the 1860s.

Originally part of the Ironbark Chinese Camp, it is now one of the few remaining original buildings of its type in Australia.

The main temple is dedicated to Guan Di (Kwan Gong), the god of war and prosperity. The Chinese saw him as a wise judge, guide, protector and provider of wealth and prosperity; factors sought by the Chinese inhabitants of this strange land.

Constructed using locally handmade bricks and painted red - symbolising happiness, strength and vitality - the Joss House is considered a significant and unique part of Bendigo's cultural history.

The Bendigo Joss House Temple is located at the northern terminus of the Vintage 'Talking' Tram Tour, which is a great addition to your tour.

Open daily 11:00am - 3:00pm.
