  • This is in Oroville?!? Beautiful temple with a shocking amount of artifacts for being in such a random place... But not that random, i won't spoil the history of the place. Well worth the $3 entry fee.
  • We took our kids to the Chinese Temple and they loved it. They learned a lot about Chinese culture hundreds of years ago and really enjoyed the artifacts. We plan on taking them back very soon.
  • A great place for a school field trip. Can't wait to see it after the remodel.
  • The building is different.
