Sze Yup Temple & Joss House

Location: Victoria Road, Glebe, NSW 2037

Constructed: 1898-1904

Tucked away in a quiet part of Glebe is the Sze Yup Temple, a rare early example of a nineteenth century Chinese temple in New South Wales. The Sze Yup Temple has been continuously used by the Chinese community since it was built, and is a focus for many involved with traditional Chinese culture and belief. Surrounded by some of the most beautiful homes in the area, the temple dates from 1898, although a fire forced its reconstruction in 1955.
