3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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.

“Colourful and jolly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

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

“One Banyan Tree's Temple with 200 years histories...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

It is amazingly that a Temple which is surrounded by Banyan Tree roots is indeed a good place to visit. especially If you are a Buddhist, you could spent your time to visit to that temple. it was an old and historical temple which is located at Senggarang Island. The island is not big, no shopping mall, but market selling local foods are available. it is a small island but filled with many 100 years historical temples. There are others old temples which you could visit if you were there. It worths... pray and make a wish... who knows, will turn into reality ^^....

“Banyan Tree Resort.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

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. Only thing was he said that if you are scared of lizards then you should avoid going to BIN TAN islands. There is nothing much a person can do about it, considering the d but I thought
