Campbells Forest: Where To Go / Sightseeing

The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion

The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion Exhibition Centre has a vast collection of sacred Buddhist relics on display that have been offered from many Buddhist traditions including Burmese, Chinese, Mongolian, Thai, Tibetan and Vietnamese.

The Great Stupa is being built near Bendigo and when complete will be 50 metres square at its base and nearly 50 metres high. This will make it the largest Stupa in the Western World. The architecture, engineering and construction of the Great Stupa are based on the requirement for the Great Stupa to last for 1,000 years.

The Great Stupa structure is now well over half completed and already a popular attraction for people of all traditions.

The Jade Buddha for Universal Peace is the largest Buddha carved from gemstone quality jade in the world. The Jade Buddha is over two and a half metres high and sits on an alabaster throne of one and a half metres high.

The Jade Buddha is on tour throughout major cities in the world before being set up at The Great Stupa in Bendigo. Currently nearly seven million people from the US, Canada, Vietnam, Australia, Europe, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Japan and India have attended Jade Buddha world tour.

Significance of The Great Stupa is that culturally, it is the largest Buddhist Stupa in the West and largest Jade Buddha in the world. Archaeologically it is based on Borobudur, Indonesia, a ninth Century UNESCO listed world heritage site and 15th Century, Gyantse Stupa, considered a 'chief wonder' of the Tibetan Buddhist world. And iconically it is a major domestic and international tourist attraction symbolising Australia's multicultural heritage.

Bendigo Joss House Temple

At the Bendigo Joss House Temple you can discover more about the Chinese migrants who came to Bendigo in search of gold so long ago.

The Bendigo Joss House Temple, a Chinese place of worship, was constructed in the late 1860s. Standing for over a century, the Bendigo Joss House Temple is one of the few remaining buildings of its type in Australia. It comprises a Caretaker's Residence, Temple and Ancestral Hall.

The main temple is dedicated to Guan-Di, the god of war and prosperity. The Chinese saw Guan-Di as a wise judge, guide, protector and provider of wealth and prosperity.

Constructed with locally hand-made bricks and painted red, symbolising the traditional Chinese colour denoting strength and vitality, the Bendigo Joss House Temple is an important part of Bendigo's cultural history.

The Bendigo Joss House Temple is located at the Northern terminus of Bendigo's iconic Vintage Talking Tram Tour.
