If you expect a cave exploring trip, forget it. If you, on the other hand, expect to see just another temple - there are so many of them in Southeast Asia, I know - then give it a chance and go for a visit! Totally worth it! When u enter the cave (free of charge), there is a frickin' large... More

This attraction is FOC. Great place to visit in Ipoh. Try to avoid public holiday. The traffic could be congested during PH.

This temple was nice and elegant. Many prayers are moving around the temple, so a bit hesitate to take photos.

I stumbled across this temple by total accident. The only person I saw was the temple attendant making it a very reflective and settling visit. Best to visit weekday early morning.

Huge, breezy cave used for Buddhist worship purposes. There are colourful murals on the walls at the back depicting Buddhism stories as well. If you're up for it, you can climb the long stairs up but there's not much up there - just another 2 rest houses and a Guan Yin statue. If you can't climb, being at the ground... More

I visited here with friends, very nice place with relaxed atmosphere. The cave has interesting history and is worth a visit . You can get here from Ipoh bus station for around 2RM or take an uber for around 12RM for up to four people. They're monkey at this cave with babies which is cool to see.

While the temple was beautiful, carved out of rocks and several paintings. The most memorable part was the tiring climb. This was a food trip to ipoh. So, with all of us stuffed to the neck, it was terribly difficult. Anyhow, for the bit of workout and also to see a beautiful temple. The trip/drive down to here is worth.
