Bendigo Chinese Gardens - Kuan Yin Temple

Kuan Yin (The Goddess of Mercy) is the most popular goddess associated with Buddhism in China and many Asian countries today. She is worshipped as the protector of families and the household, especially women and children.

The temple was consecrated on the 30th of November 1996, according to Buddhist rituals and the customs and traditions of the Bendigo Chinese.

Traditionally most Kuan Yin Statues are made of wood and clay. Bendigo’s ‘Kuan Yin’ is hand- carved from white marble, which is very special.
