This temple dominated in the red color. This temple is a favorite Singaporeans and Malaysians to pray, especially when during big event such as  Chinese New Year celebration. When you come to this place, the big red gate will take your attention. Because the combination big pillars (4 pillars) and up the roof has two dragons. Of course this gate so fantastic to see.

In other side, right your hand side, you can see the temple and some statues such as Dewi Khuan In around the fish pool. This monastery is quite magnificent with a variety of ornaments Dewi Kwan In, actually. This is so nice place because a lot of trees around this place. Even sunny day, you still can enjoy it. Like I do. I really love to see the fishes are swimming in the pool and hearing the sound of waves. The soft wind make me feel so nice.




Get to inside the temple, the local people in Tanjungpinang said this place is Kelenteng. Located in Senggarang which this place such as “Chinese town” of Tanjungpinang, Indonesia. You will find some temples to pray. Get little up, you will see the big statue and its so fantastic right to visit it.


Another side in this temple, the left said you can see the ocean and from this pier you can see another island. Its call Penyengat island.  I will tell you this later. Let’s check this pictures I taken for you to enjoy it and perhaps you wanna get lost either in this place, like I do. For more info for you guys this place (pagoda) was built in the 18th century.











2 Tien Shang Miao Temple

This temple little different then Vihara Dharma Sasana because this just one temple and the ages already long time ago. You can smell of stinging incense comes from an old Temple. This temple located in the middle of a market. The temple name is Tien Shang Miao Temple.


A little history about this temple, a hundreds  years ago, this temple was the home of a well known Chinese captain. The location of his house is exactly across the river that empties into the dock. After no longer used, the house was then used as a place of worship by local residents.


Even like that, this temp'e so special because this temple is covered by banyan tree (pohon beringin) roots. According to locals, initially the house building has two floors. But Banyan tree's roots continued to pierce into the cavity of the building's walls, some of which were not used anymore. As the reason because the whole room upstairs had been filled with tree trunks. Even like that this temple still use to pray. That is why you still can smell incense. This place is worth it to keep in your list during your holiday to visit Tanjungpinang, Bintan island because this is unusually place to get an adventure to see the local people and the different object. Its fantastic right.
