The Chinese community is interwoven to the history of Bendigo from the beginning of the gold rush in the 1850’s to the present.

A Chinese house of prayer, Bendigo Joss House, is a landmark owned by the City of Greater Bendigo that has stood the test of time since it was built in the late 1860s.

The building is made of bricks that had been painted red, and is managed by the Bendigo Trust.

It provides an interesting insight into Chinese culture and beliefs.
