CHINESE TEMPLE
























Kuan Yin Temple (Guan Yin) in the Chinese Gardens at Bendigo was the first Buddhist temple built to honour the Goddess of Mercy in Australia. Kuan Yin is the most popular goddess associated with Buddhism in China and many Asian countries today. She is worshipped as the protector of families and the household, especially women and children.
The 1850s gold rush attracted many Chinese people to Australia in search of a fortune. The majority of them were indentured or contract labourers, however many made the voyage under the credit-ticket system managed by brokers and emigration agents.
The Chinese immigrants referred to the Australian gold fields as 'Xin Jin Shan', or the 'New Gold Mountain'.[link]
