Po Hwa Kong
Po Hwa Kong information
Reflecting the religious diversity of the island, this historic Chinese Buddhist temple (built in 1806) acts as a spiritual centre for believers of all faiths, including Hindus, Christians and Muslims. Inside the compound there's a classically Chinese combination of dragons, gods and clouds of sweet incense. Make a donation and the whippet-thin, kretek cigarette-puffing guardian will give you a personal fortune reading (in Bahasa Indonesia only). It's just east of the port in Ampenan.
