The icon of Pematangsiantar city. With the highest Avalokitesvara statue. One of the proof, that the city is quite tolerant among the many races & religion of the people.

By my experience this temple still have another step towards the completion of construction. But the statue has been standing majestically. There are another Buddha character statue around the Kwan Im. However, you will find peace atmosphere in this place.
