The Bendigo Joss House Temple, a Chinese place of worship, was constructed in the 1870s. Standing for over a century, the Bendigo Joss House Temple is one of the few remaining buildings of its type in Australia. It comprises a Caretaker's Residence, Temple and Ancestral Hall.

The main temple is dedicated to Guan-Di, the god of war and prosperity. The Chinese saw Guan-Di as a wise judge, guide, protector and provider of wealth and prosperity.

Constructed with locally hand-made bricks and painted red - symbolising the traditional Chinese colour denoting happiness, strength and vitality - the Bendigo Joss House Temple is an important part of Bendigo's cultural history.

The Bendigo Joss House Temple is located at the Northern terminus of Bendigo's iconic Vintage Talking Tram Tour.
