“Spacious big temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised with the sight of such a big temple in batam. Start from the middle hall where the three main Buddhas and don't forget the laughing Buddha hall at the third floor I think. The food canteen serve good vegetarian food at very affordable price which people of all races or religion can enjoy. I do see bus loads of tourist when I was there and regardless Buddhist or not, all tourist should respect others' religion and any place of worship.

“Nothing to see here, move along”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I'm not even sure why I was taken to this 'attraction' by a tour guide. There's nothing - absolutely nothing of interest here.

“Numerous Laughing Buddha statues to cheer you up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I love all the various laughing buddha statues in various sizes and costumes lined around the temple. The whole temple is massive and worth a visit.
