“Tranquil and Majestic”

Vihara Avalokitsvara - Statue of Dewi Kwan Im
Reviewed 3 January 2017

This place is a place of worship for Buddhism. The area has 12 statues of 12 Chinese zodiac signs, and one colossal statue of the Goddess of Kwan Im (goddess of love in Buddhism). Nothing to lose if you drop by here in case you happen to be in Siantar.

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.

En-route from Parapat to Medan there is not much in terms of tourist attraction points unless you like endless rubber and palm oil plantations. Just to have an excuse to stretch your legs you may consider a stop at Vihara Avalokitsvara with the Statue of Dewi Kwan Im in Siantar. It is a bit of a quiet place, good for walking around a bit. Half an hour is more than enough. Reportedly, the Statue is the highest in SE-Asia and from that point of view worthwhile a visit.

A beautiful and peaceful Kwan Im statue in the small town of Siantar. Different with common temple which is crowded , this temple is child friendly, even though you are not there for praying, the temple always open door welcoming you. Nice to visit before sunset.
