This temple is arguably the biggest temple in Batam. They say the Maitreya worshipped here is not the same as the future Buddha whose name is also Maitreya. Nevertheless, we can see that the people here were very nice. There were blocks on the wall describing the great Master with mustache who taught the teaching of the laughing Buddha. The... More

A huge temple most suited for devout Buddhists. There is also a vegetarian restaurant within, and locals have told me that they serve really nice food there. As for me, who is neither a Buddhist nor a vegetarian, I spent my time taking photos of the various laughing Buddha statues in the gardens and parking lot.

According to the locals, this temple is very far from Batam City Center and will cost around $60,000 one way to get there. So did not manage to get there.

A good place for Buddhists to pay respects to Buddha and other Bodhisattvas. Not too crowded as the temple is very big. Many stone laughing Buddha stature for photography.

Maha_Vihara_Duta_Maitreya is one of the largest selection of tourist arrivals in Batam with wisdom against the Buddhist religious culture. Various historical and Buddhist ornaments displayed in full there. If tourists want to feel too full vegetarian specialties served at the venue. If you visit in Batam do not miss this one
