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.

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

When I heard about the history of this temple I was very excited. After seeing it, I think I can sum my experience up this way: I like the idea of a Banyan Tree Temple, but I think we're about 200 yrs away from one. Still interesting to see, but I only went because it was part of the hotel... More
