This is the largest temple in Batam. Very solemn here. The structures are grand and majestic. The Buddhas are huge. The kneeling cushions are however worn out already so they should also consider replacing them. It would be nice to have an organized area where you leave your shoes. Be ready for wet-ones to wipe your feet as well or... More

My colleagues and I visited this place as it was part of the tour palace that we paid for. It's a huge mosque but nothing much really to appreciate. Well..it's great for Chinese people though but not for me. Just took some photos of the Buddha and that's about it. Nothing much to say about this place.

Very well-kept and enormous area. Peaceful surroundings. Devotees can make sincere prayers and other travellers can take some beautiful pictures for memories.

I always go by Trip Advisor, but on this one, I was surprised it was rated #1 attraction in Batam. After going there, I realized that it was maybe because there isn't a whole lot to do in Batam Center. It is a very nice Temple, but not a tourist attraction.
