|Tam Boa Tu Temple Vietnamese Buddhist Temple|
1975, at the end of the Vietnam war, about ten Vietnamese families
came to Fresno. They were all very well educated and spoke English
or French. The only work they could obtain was janitorial or
restaurant work. They went to school by day and both husband and
wife worked to support their families. They sent their children to
school and about 85 percent completed college. There are about 5,000
Vietnamese in the Fresno area now.
They bought a house on Clark Street and used it for a Buddhist temple for twenty years. In 1995 they built their beautiful new temple on Elm Ave.
