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. The temple, painted in red with green trim, is perched on Albion Street in Mendocino. It is believed to be the oldest joss house in rural California, having been established in 1867. While the exterior is quite unimposing, if you can, step inside to view articles of ethnic history.
