Temple is in Senggarang- a Chinese enclave. Mostly built over the sea, this charming village has many alleyways and roadside stalls to explore.

This place can be really crowded but it's worth the visit. Should visit this place after Penyengat Island and look at the difference of the to culture and heritage. It can also get really hot here.

The Tree here is supposed to be very special. Can get crowded and better to plan visits out of regular timings.

small temple and rooftop is covered by tree roots. Looks like mini angkor wat. However it is just one temple that is covered with tree root here.

We went by road and it is a little, but well worth the effort. It is a bit of a mix, with colourful statues, ponds and traditional structures. My favorite was a drunk laying in the shrubbery and the happy Buddha wearing glasses. A good place to go for young and old, it brought a smile to my face. Recommended

The island is not big, no shopping mall, but market selling... More

I had booked a suite for my client at Banyan Tree resort. He had too many good things to say about the resort. Especially the Banyan Tree Temple and the management of the Resort.

This temple is across the estuary from Tanjung Pinang so we hired a boat. half way across, a torrential rain storm suddenly appeared. We sheltered in the main Chinese Temple first then found out that the Banyan Tree Temple is about one kilometre east of the main temple. After more sheltering, we got there, soaked to our skins, but it... More
