“Nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Been here few times and always enjoy the nice vegetarian food. They seem to have setup a small cafe selling wholemeal organic bread and organic coffee - worth a try.

Apart from that, the third floor praying hall was quite a good place to meditate.

“Must Visit in Batam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

This was my second experience in any buddhist monastery and first outside india. The chinese influence is clearly visible on the architectural style with pagodas and chinese deities. It really took me to an ancient chinese era.
