It is only at the very back of the cave that you get to find its gem, a stunning chinese pagoda temple that rises against the sheer cliffs of the karst mountains. A very unexpected find for this rather sleepy looking cave. The temple was...More

It is worth the time and effort making your way there. No words can describe the place. No pictures taken is sufficient to showcase the breathtaking view and experience of this place. It’s a must go.

One of the lovely temple we have visited so far in Ipoh. In the cave, as usual, you will see the Buddhist statues and many paintings so beautiful on the walls of the cave. As you walk through the cave there are steps to lead...More

All-in-one and it's free - what more can you ask. Enjoy the artwork on the walls especially if you had read about the Chinese myths and legends. The lighting on the stalactites and stalagmites are impressive. Lastly, you may want to seek blessing before you...More

I think this would be the best of cave temple in Ipoh, out of other temples. A bit out from town center but still accessible by taxi. The staff at the temple was nice and even assist us to book a taxi back to town....More

there is monkey but i don c bats
Hi.. are video recordings allowed in the temple ? I'm a 49 year old Malaysian Chinese Independent film maker and i'm about to start a 2 week SOLO riding trip across our beautiful country.. As a concerned citizen and BEING SICK OF OUR LOCAL POLITICS WITH ALL THE RACIAL OVERTONES, i've decided to make a short film on what it is, THAT MAKES MALAYSIA SO INCREDIBLY AWESOME !!... I'm hoping this video will remind most Malaysian's about not just the BEAUTY of our country but also of it's PEOPLE as well.. Fire cannot be fought with fire and the only way to counter the hatred caused by our Politicians, is with the beauty and pride of our nation.. My video equipment will only consist of a small camera mounted on a Unipod ( single leg) as opposed to a tripod ( 3 legs) and i assure you this will NOT be a hindrance or danger to any other visitors !!.. I will be leaving KL on Sunday or Monday latest and will be riding along the back roads through KKB, Frasers, Tanjung Malim, Tapah, Kampar, Ipoh, Kuala Kangsar, Taiping, Penang, Sungai Petani, Langkawi and will reassess from here... Should hopefully be in Ipoh by Tues/Wednesday (5 or 6th December 2016) Will pay the normal entrance fee, just needing permission for a simple film.. Thank you..
