This is one of the oldest and historical temple in Batam, I think there are other temples too but this is the only we had a chance to visit during our last trip.

The parking is huge and there are lots of sculpture for those photo moments. There are also some stalls selling local “kueh”, praying stuff and drinks here. I saw quite a bit of tour bus here, so figure this must be a popular tourist attraction too.

In the main temple building, you can pray and there are lots of coiled shaped incenses having around with latterns making the temple look really good. When I was there on Sunday morning, there’s actually a buddhism class going on at the back with a lot of young students attending and its all done in Bahasa Indonesia.

So if you are in Batam, no harm checking this place out, plus can “bai bai” for health and happiness ;).
