Bendigo Joss House, Australia

Bendigo Joss House

A visit to the Bendigo Joss House (house of Prayer) provides a glimpse into the Chinese culture and tradition. Significant as the only surviving building of its kind in regional Victoria, it continues to be used as a place of worship. One of Bendigo's original buildings, it is constructed from timber and local handmade bricks and is painted red in the traditional Chinese colour, denoting strength.
