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.

Supposed to be the biggest in Southeast Asia, this large temple has many sections to it - from outside to inside. There are courses conducted in this temple, and there are also many groups of tourists visiting this place for photography, understanding its history, or offering their prayers. There is even a small outdoor garden with some statues; it is... More

This is my first stop of my self-planned tour with a driver following me around. The temple is very quiet, as I arrived in 0910 (Batam time) and witness very few people around and I begin my prayers inside the temple. As a Buddhist, I can't help but to think why are Indonesian temples so quiet initially, as temples back... More

First visit to this temple. It is big and tranquil. 3 big praying halls as you enter. There are many laughing buddha statues for picture taking. Wanted to try the Vegetarian Restaurant, however it was close for a week due to Chinese New Year.

the best place for you to find a peace, despite your beliefs and religion, I'm a christian but I love come to this place. They have this vegetarian restaurant, which is nice and the food was good. There's nothing that I don't like about this place. This is one of the best tourist spot in Batam for sure.

Maha Vihara is allegedly the largest Buddhist temple in South East Asia. It has 3 large prayer halls on the ground floor & two large assembly/ prayer halls on the 1st & 2nd floors.

Its a nice place. There are also statues with your Zodiac in front of the building (carpark). Interesting. You are wasting your time or considered never been to Batam if you miss this place. Biggest in Asia.
