Maha Vihara Maitreya, Medan

Maha Vihara Maitreya, located in Cemara Asri, Medan, is the biggest Buddhist temple in Indonesia.

An impressive, huge and beautiful temple. The compound of the temple is huge and is made up of a few storeys, which include the main hall, accommodations, auditoriums as well as classrooms.

Being a Buddhist temple, only vegetarian food allowed in the building. The quietness in the temple does in fact create the feeling of peacefulness and calmness :)

Indeed an added bonus to my last trip to Medan as it was not in my original itinerary, but upon suggestion from the tour guide, have decided to pay a visit. Definitely worth a visit.
