At first, I thought it is just another temple until I ventured the stairs on the left inside the temple. There is a steep flight of stairs which brings you to more cave work. You will find stalactites and columns. Interesting find.

This is one of the popular chinese temple in Ipoh. It's required a certain fitness to get up to the hill. A good place to pray & click photo around the temple

Visited this temple on the same day Ling Son Tong that's located next door. And although this temple is better and more authentic it's still over touristy and loses the religious feel. Disappointing.

Frankly, this is not as interesting as its neighbours Sam Poh Tong and Ling Sen Tong. The parking is here is better than its neighbours though. This temple is a little creepy and spooky. There are many dark lonely staircases and many blogs have speculated...More

Another nice cave temple to visit, located between Ling Sen Tong Temple and Sam Poh Tong Temple. Not a very special temple but a very beautiful and nicely built temple. Worth to spend a little bit of time for a short visit.
