This vihar is the oldest in Tanjungpinang because it was built about 300 years ago, namely in the 17th century, by immigrants from mainland China. The existence of this pagoda is proof of the existence of Chinese citizens in this area since the days of the first Kerajaan Riau (Riau Kingdom).

This vihar complex has four main buildings and three temples facing the sea. The first temple is called the Fu De Zheng Shen temple. The second is the Tian Hou Sheng Mu temple, the third is the Yuan Tien Shang temple, and the fourth is the Dharma Sasana Vihar, built-in 1988. Some buildings that stand firmly with an area of 5 hectares are still maintained for their beauty which foreign tourists, especially Chinese tourists, often visit.

In this vihar, they had the largest Buddha statue in Bintan, namely the gold-plated Sleeping Buddha status.
