“The temple is clean and spacious.”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

I like the different statues doing different activities, especially the one holding a microphone. The golden buddha sitting at the top looks magnificent.

“Good mistake”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We wanted to go to Nagoya and somehow the 3 taxis took us to this Buddhist temple and was glad it was a good mistake. The temple is big, spacious, clean and everything seems to be orderly. Due to time constraint we did not try the vegetarian food but did spend about 40 minutes walking around and the staff is indeed friendly and helpful. For non Buddhist 30 minutes to walk around would be sufficient, for those who pray, it may take about an hour or so.

“Interesting temple”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

No wonder this temple is one of the main places to visit in Batam. Love the praying halls, the murals, the statutes, the vegetarian foods and the friendly staff.

“Very beautiful temple”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

There is a vegetarian canteen in it. One special thing about it is that it sells buns in the shape of tortoise with pink, green, purple and brown colour. You can choose red bean or char siew filling and cost around SGD30cents. It is a very big and beautiful temple.
