Centuries old banyan tree. Stood solidly through the passing of time. I can feel the serenity around the trees. Teach us to be strong in life no matter what challenges we faced. I am so glad to visit in person.

The Banyan Tree Temple sounds great on paper, but in real, is a very small structure, not really made just within Banyan trees. The tiny little garden behind the temple is pretty and quaint, with a bit of an Alice in Wonderland feel. If you're...More

Pros: 1. Just an old tree with over 200 hundreds years and the temple right inside of it 2. Can see the small stalls next to it if you like to take local village photos Cons: 1. Nothing much to see on this temple

If you've never been to a stilt village, this is a nice, prosperous one and partially inhabited by commuters who prefer the 10 minute boat ride to Bintan to the long drive. You should do the same and combine it with a trip to the...More

Why would you want to do simple cooking? There is an outdoor open air pavilliion. The temple is small and deserted. I am only ther to admire the centuries banyan tree.
I have been asked, if this is the temple, which we can also find the 18 Lohan Statues. Thank you in advance!
