Tua Pek Kong Temple

Tua Pek Kong or also known as Vihara Budhi Bhakti is touted as the oldest Buddhism temple in Batam. It was inaugurated on 18 September 1986 by the local authority of Batam. This temple occupies an area of approximately 650 square meters and has been frequently visited by many foreign tourists, such as South Korea, India, Singapore, Malaysia, and Japan.

In contrast to several other monasteries in Batam, the architectural design of Tua Pek Kong Temple is well influenced by the Chinese architecture, such as its interior designs with red lanterns hanging from the ceiling and striking red colour that making this Buddhism temple looks like a Chinese temple. Until today, Tua Pek Kong Temple is still being used to worship every day, as well as for Buddhism religious festivities.

Beside the temple there is a small park that has several statues of gods, such as Maitreya Buddha, the Goddess Kuan Im, as well as several other gods. Relief gods also adorn the outer wall of the temple. A pagoda is built in front of the temple, while next to the temple, there is also a small Chinese temple called Khong Hu Chu Temple.
