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!

Situated near to Batam ferry terminal. Big laughing Buddha temples which have many Maitreya Laughing Buddha figurines inside the compound. They also cater vegetarian food at the temple restaurant and a souvenir shop.

Almost in every corner of the building found the statue of Buddha Maitreya that has a high width posture, dense ears and belly fat, innocent personality and always laugh. Once seen, felt a warm welcoming feel of life, it looks Maitreya said: Welcome to the loving world. He led all humann into a new world, life with peace and happiness.

The temple is really huge and clean. You get the peaceful feel while chanting your prayers. The wide selection of vegetarian dishes and vegetarian paus were really good. I was especially impressed by the vegetarian rendang. It taste as good as the meat rendang.
