So much of Marysville history is here, from back in the gold rush days when the town was made prosperous. Artifacts from ancient times are shown here. Marysville has a Bok Kai parade every year to honor the heritage of the Chinese temple. Much is...More

Nice excursion. Grounds are really pleasant. Plenty of 'on' street parking. Nice restaurants almost next store so you can park, tour, and lunch all within steps of each destination.

I only walked the outside, it appears they have let it return to nature. It was deserted. Also, the back is almost crammed up against a dike, which makes it feel claustrophobic. Also, it's at the end of the main drag in Marysville- but 50%...More

The temple is only open during the Bok Kai Festival, so be sure to go when you can. It is very small and being restored as funds become available, so it's not like Chinese temples you may have seen elsewhere. Bok Kai is the goddess...More
