Weaverville, CA Joss House

Yun Lin Miao (Cloud Forest temple) is the oldest continuously used Chinese temple in California. Located in Weaverville, California, the temple was built in 1874 as a replacement for another that had burned. This is a small temple but filled with history.
I traveled there with my friends, Huang Li and daughter, Xin Yu, and Kang Shu Jin.
Inside the temple there is a main alter and behind that three smaller alters with dieties. Here is a picture of some of the dieties.
Because my friends are Chinese we were allowed to go up to the alters to view it more closely.

Pictured in front of the Temple (Left to right) are my friends Kang Shu Jin, Huang Li, and Xin Yu.
