Repairs are underway at the Oroville Chinese Temple and Museum.

The temple will be closed for about two months to allow crews to conduct restoration of the historic building.

Last month, the Oroville city council approved more than $400,000 to make repairs. Some of the repairs include installation of a drain system with holding tank and pumping controls, roofing, deck and railing repairs and installation of exterior lighting.

The temple was built in 1863 to pay homage to the many Chinese immigrants who settled in California who primarily worked the gold mines, but also helped with railroad construction and farming in Oroville.
