Vihara Dharma Bhakti
Jakarta's oldest Buddhist temple dates back to 1650 and, interestingly, also draws followers of Confucianism and Taoism. Originally known as Jinde Yuan and built in honor of Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy, it was destroyed in 1740 and later restored in 1755. The temple, with its bright red and yellow adornments, is home today to 18 Buddhist monks. Effigies and statues of deities fill the interior, and worshippers stream in regularly to pray for favors. The sharp smell of incense and burning candles can be overpowering for some visitors. Outside the main building, more statues stand in the side wings.
