About this site: The only surviving building from a Chinese settlement founded in Atherton in the 1880s, Hou Wang Temple was constructed of timber and corrugated iron and opened in 1903. For decades it was the social and religious heart of Atherton’s Chinese community. The existing fittings for the temple, including the elaborate carvings, bell, ding and metal vessels were made in China.
