The infrastructure was stunning and there were many laughing buddhas (笑佛) in the temple. The temple has a vegeterian cafe and there were many gods to pray to. Ate at a cafe opposite the road of the temple and they serve pretty legit indonesian/western cuisine at a reasonable price. Definitely worth a visit while in batam!

This temple is huge and peaceful. There are sculptures of the 12 chinese zodiacs with Toa Pekong that are so adorable at the outside complex. The inside area are open for visitors and from my experience, it was not trampled by tourists which made it even more enjoyable and relaxing. Enjoyed my visit very much!
