Went there to do some prayers with family. Place was very calm and serene. You can pay what you want for the prayer items via the donation box. There was no fixed amount. I found it to be an enjoyable experience as it was not a commercialized place like some places of worship.

It's a red temple where locals come to pray. On the left side of the main gate, there is a line of stalls selling food and some stuff for prayers. Behind the red temple is the main hall where the three highest buddhas sit: Gotama (center), Bhaisajyaguru (right) and Amitabha (left). It's highly serene in there.

Our first stop since arriving in Batam. It is quite a huge Buddhist complex, probably funded by the local Chinese community.

The Front is the Tua Pek Kong temple, it is in a traditional South China building with a central courtyard and a main deity praying halls.

Behind the TPK Temple, what look like a newly constructed Great Buddhist Hall, go up the stairs to the main prayer halls, there are 3 huge Buddha statues inside. Chants are playback on the speaker.

Please be respectable and dressed decently when visiting as it is a local religious place.

This again is a MUST see sights for the tourists, especially the Buddhist tourists. "TUA PEK KONG" actually means the GOD of the LAND, and supposed to be in charge ot the land in their protection !! However, the temple also pay respect to other Buddhist Gods !!! The temple is suppoesed to be historical and much ronovation has been done. For the seasoned travellers, this is just an average sight, as compared other Majestic Temples in ASEAN !!! There is a small line of stalls and shops within of the temple, offering acceptable local tip bits, drinks, snaps..... As it is a MUST see sights , visit it for the experience.

Loved the big chanting hall. Peaceful and quiet. Great place to offer prayers and an escape from the noisy city.

This is the first time I got to visit the Tua Pek Kong Temple. Quite a nice place for prayers as it is the oldest temple.

This place is filled with historical site and good for photo taking. If you have some knowledge with Chinese history, you may love to explore the surroundings. Recently they are doing upgrading and the temple was closed, however some parts are still open for photo shoot. Try out the kueh and coffee nearby, they are delicious.
