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 owed to those who came before us

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.

We had the opportunity to visit the Bok Kai Temple in Marysville, CA recently as was astonished that is temple is still a functional temple, operating for generations since the 1800s. We must admit, it looked a by creepy at first, but talking to observing people who come to the temple on a regular insight gave us a better perspective of the temple. The curator, Mr. Tom, who gave us a tour was also helpful on bringing back the colorfulness of the history of the temple. We must credit Mr. Tom, who is also an historian, for telling us wonderful and interesting stories of yesteryear, of the temple, and its origin.
Without people like Mr. Tom, much of our history will be lost.

This was a fascinating piece of local history. Our favorite visit was during the Bok Kai festival when we were able to go inside. Otherwise, it is simply a nice photo op. I would recommend trying to visit when it's open.
