I had heard a lot about this temple. But honestly it wasn't as attractive as I had thought. Catching a taxi to this temple might be a problem so its better u catch one at the ferry junction itself.

Big statue and calm, still environment. We were here on the way to Singapore by boat. We can take some pictures. Try to see the view on the top floor, that was nice !

This temple is worth a visit even if you are not a Buddhist. I really like the spacious, clean and simplicity of it.

A must-go place when you visit Batam. Pray for health and safety. Remember to go back and thank the Gods for blessing you. :)

Am not a religious person, thus not really interested in the statues and sculptures. But the stalls at the other side of the parking lot serve delicious local delicacies! We bought a kind of local chinese dumpling called Tsui Kuih (Water cake), and it was the best one i've ever tried. The dumpling skin was so thin and smooth that... More

A great temple with so many buddhas. The white smiling buddhas outside the temple were my favorites. They have souvenir shop if you wish to buy some. an open temple, open for everybody to pray & take pictures. Solemn & relaxing place to visit.
