“Taoist Temple”

Gunung Timur Temple
Reviewed 31 January 2013

This Taoist Temple Vihara Gunung Timur is located 500 m south of the Hindu temple and It overlooks the Babura River. Known as the oldest temple in Medan that was built on 1962.

Unfortunately, I came by not at the right time as they were preparing things up for the upcoming Chinese New Year, February 2013.

Surprisingly, a guard stop us when we were about to walk out from the area, he asked for money and even said that there were 2 guards at that moment... It was such an indecent behaviour.. but since we were just 2 backpacker girls, tried to prevent unnecessary things so we gave them 10.000,00 IDR. Never knows what will happen, so please always be careful.

We visited the Vihara in the morning.
It was big, old and interesting to see.
The location is in the city and easy reachable.

that being said (the tittle) if you have been to place like Penang where there are much more old temple then Vihara gunung timur might not be that amazing. its one of the oldest and always filled travel brochure's for medan. the inside area is not very big, a few minute of walkabout will do. nothing especially special
