Chinese Temple Garden


Chinese Temple Garden
1500 Broderick St.
Oroville, CA 95965

Built in 1863 to serve the largest community of Chinese north of Sacramento, this temple of treasures is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and also as a California Landmark. It was first opened to visitors during California’s 1949 Centennial. Although it is now a museum, it is still an active temple and used occasionally for worship. Within the temple compound is a garden with plantings originating in China, featuring a Lace Bark Pine tree, and bamboo planted in the 1860s. The fish pond has lily pads that bloom during the summer, and the Pamello tree fruit is usually ripe during the Chinese New Year.
