“expansive building but no striking feature.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

i wish to clarify my statement about the "no striking feature". Most temples have either a striking dome and some kind of stupas that immediately associate the building to being a temple.

This emple is housed in qa very expansive building and one feature of the building is that it perches on a very high ground thereby providing reasonably panoramic view of the batam town.

devotees feel that prayers are answered if done in earnest.hence there is a huge following of this temple.this is the largest budhist temple in indonesia,according to our local guide but i am not sure whether it is bigger than the BROBODUR. members views will be welcome.


there is a renowned vegetarian restaurant located within the building/ unfortunately during our visit the restaurant was closed post chinese new year holidays and hence we could not sample the cuisine. vegetarians missed it all the more .most o of the food items simulate meat and sea food inclusing the expternal experience. i would recommend it to the uninitiated to try and experience these unique preparations souced from soya beans.

“Huge Temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I recently visited this Temple. It was enormous and beautiful. My family and I were able to roam the temple at our leisure. There are 3 main worship rooms with very large Buddha statues.
