Get to inside the temple, the local people in Tanjungpinang said this place is Kelenteng. Located in Senggarang which this place such as “Chinese town” of Tanjungpinang, Indonesia. You will find some temples to pray. Get little up, you will see the big statue and its so fantastic right to visit it.

Temple that stood the test of time
Mar 2017 • Couples
One of our desire was to visit the Banyan Tree Temple but due to a miscommunication, we get to visit this lesser known historical site.
This is the oldest temple compound for the Chinese in Bintan.
It is situated right at the end of the road into Senggarang village, a huge place that come with a nice sea view.
As we enter, there is the colourful Chinese gateway standing at the entrance. As we proceed further, 3 classic Taoist temple came into view.
These temples are old, they are dated all the way back to the 1800s, during the reign of 7th Emperor of the Ching Dynasty.
It was established by the Chinese immigrants that settled at Senggarang, and since then they have been worship by generations after generations of Chinese until now. As such, even though the temples are old, they are well preserved and maintained.
According to the locals, during the Chinese New Year and the 9th Day of the 9th Month of the Lunar Calendar, there are big celebrations at this compound. Worshipers came as far as Malaysia and Singapore, joining the locals in the celebration. One can imagine the grand affair it must be.
One were to venture behind these temples, you will get to see some beautiful huge sculpture of the Buddha and also life size figurine of Characters from Chinese folklore, such as the characters from the Journey to the West.
There is also a modern looking Buddhist temple up on the hill too.
Other than the temples and the sculpture, there is also a big garden just next to the sea, ideal place for a nice picnic under the trees. There are rows of food cart at the open area, selling some local delicacies.
Venturing further, there is a short pier that one can walk on. From there, we could see the stilt houses of the villagers and beyond that the town of Tanjung Pinang, the ferry terminal and hill. I was told that the preferred transportation for the locals to travel between Senggarang and Tanjung Pinang is the motorized sanpan, which takes only 5 minutes each way.
For a relaxing cultural tour, this is the place to come to. Only thing to be aware of, mosquitos, so make sure you come prepared.
