Bendigo Joss House Temple Reviews
We were disappointed with this. While it’s beautiful on the outside, there is very little to see inside. We were only there for fifteen minutes.....and that was pushing it. more »
Very disappointing, especially for the fee they charge. Basically tables laden with foodstuffs & religious offerings in 3 tiny rooms. Took us 2 minutes to view. Better to take photos externally... more »
Was so beautiful, interesting to experience a different cultures prayer house. Loved the lucky and rabbit lolly. Pretty and fat fish in the pond.
1. Using other people's culture to make money?? Should be free entry 2. Boring
