For me, there was the biggest temple I met. Upper balcony had a great view to city and the cafe is recommended for its delicious local drinks with acceptable prices.

At the past about 2-3 years before pandemic corona. Tourist from several country will visit this temple every sunday (Japanese, American, Korean, and many more countries). I still remember the sight of it, and i do really miss that times. But the last time i visit which is 1 weeks before i upload this experience, i do find some tourist from Indian and America. I hope all place will be recover like the old times.
This is one of Batam main Chinese/Buddhist Temple. This is a very peaceful place. There is a huge complex with three main halls for Buddha, Guang Kong and Guan Yin. There is a vegetarian restaurant as well too. Nice place for a break and a taste for vegan food. And a shop that sells all the Buddha items, including beautiful clocks and souvenirs to buy and take home. Almost all tour agents include this in their programmed.
