At Senggarang Village built over the sea, two of the oldest temples in Bintan greet your arrival. Built to give thanks for the safe sea passage of the early Chinese settlers, the Vihara Dharma Sasana (temple) is a perfect showcase of the co-existence of Gods and Dragons in Chinese mythology. And just a stone’s throw away, another temple has given way to nature as an ancient tree intertwines its trunk around the structure of the Banyan Tree Temple.
