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.
