“Dedicated to the Chinese god of war”

Dedicated to the Chinese god of war - a Taoist symbol of integrity and loyalty, the Temple of Kwan Tai offers living evidence of Mendocino's 19th Century Chinese community. Four generations of its founders' descendents have preserved this original Taoist temple, a site now recognized as California Registered Historic Landmark No. 927. The Temple of Kwan Tai was restored and rededicated in October 2001 through the efforts of the Hee Family, the Temple Trustees, Mendocino youth involved in the North Coast Rural Challenge Network, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the California Coastal Resources Agency. Its mission is to teach and celebrate community and diversity.

Take a moment to step into Chinese History in Downtown Mendocino. The Temple is a beautiful & quaint symbol the Chinese people are a part of this community especially during Chinese New Year when there is a community parade hosted by The Temple. While meandering through town, checkout the Temple then walk the bluff to see where Chinese vegetables still grow. It is a charming visit.
