Review of Bok Kai Temple

Bok Kai Temple
Reviewed 28 May 2018

This very old Temple is so amazing. There are very few authentic Chinese Temples remaining in this country. The Docent was very kind and took the time to answer all my questions.
Very few visitors, we were told , are allowed downstairs in the “museum” area. We were so lucky because we saw the most fabulous restored Dragon Head. It was brought from China, and used in parades until the 1930’s. Then it was retired, and brought in for restoration. This old piece is hard to describe and must be seen to be believed.
It is only open on the weekends, but so worth it

This was very neat and it has a cool story behind it. Really enjoyed the architecture but I think k it would be better to visit in the spring when everything is bright green and flowers are blooming.

A restored mural, artifacts and more are interesting things to see when touring this historical Chinese Temple. Featured on a PBS show and a tour with one of the local guides is a must. Open the week end each year during the Bok Kai Festival and Parade.
In the neighborhood is also the old school and lovely mural by a local artists

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.
