Vihara Dewi Kwan Yin/Dewi Kwan Yin Monastery

Vihara Dewi Kwan Yin is a pagoda mostly visited by believers not just from the island but also other parts of the country. One of the famous national celebrities, Titiek Puspa, an actress, music composer and a singer, used to come to this vihara to pray. Local belief says the water in the vihara’s pool can “heal diseases and make ageless”. Visitors are allowed to take a bath in the pool. There is a wallow in the middle of one of the pools, where you can throw a coin and make a wish. Legend says if the coin falls right in the center of the wallow the wish will come true.
