Fodor's Review

An active place of worship on the outskirts of the city, this small Chinese temple was built during the gold rush days by Chinese miners.

These men were usually dispatched from villages on the Chinese mainland, and they were expected to work hard and return as quickly as possible with their fortunes. Sadly, tensions with white miners were a feature of that era, along with
