“Not small”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We found this temple whilst out on ride on our little hire bike, set in extensive grounds it really does look impressive. The temple is very ornate with some beautiful carvings, not only as stand a lines, but as part of the structure such as the pillars. I think this temple is only just beginning and I would not be surprised to see it grow much a larger as the years go on. A little way out of the city but on the main road, worth avisit .

“Peaceful and serene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We visited the temple last year during our trip to Bintan, Indonesia. It was beautiful. It is quite far from the resort we stayed in, so we visited on our way back to Kuala Lumpur. We went in noon, so its was very hot and sunny, that that helped the photographers. Its a must visit if you are in Bintan. Very colorful and state-of-art temple. You can spend time looking around and sitting inside peacefully.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

A lot of big statues and the temple was really nice. Although location is quite far from the resort, it's a nice place to drop by. Try to arrange for a tour.

“Best place of bintan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

The only sight seeing place here in the whole of Bintan. You can spend around half an hour here.

There's a ayam Pennet in the area around 2 miles away. Sells decent food. Feel free to check out as well.
