Recently visited this temple while on a family holiday in Ipoh - and while it's not breathtaking, it's definitely worth a quick detour. There are various parts of the cave with different religious statues, and there's also a way all the way to the top of the hill from within the cave. You'll definitely end up needing a shower, though,... More

This a place for any visitor to this once tin mining town. Ipoh is surrounded with limestone hills/mountains hence you find multi caves around the city. Go early to avoid the heat as the climb to the top do needs some stamina but the view is worth the climb.

The Perak Cave Temple is located quite close from the Ipoh. Besides the Temple and the Cave itself, there is a very nice natural park over there.

A selection of buildings outside with amazing statues and cave art inside the cave. You will need to look around to make sure you seem it all. There is also a set of stairs with suitable warnings for the unwell and unfit not to proceed. This turned out to be justified with a climb to the roof which then continued... More

This is a beautiful chinese temple built within a cave. Lovely statues of various Gods worshiped by the vast chinese population. Within the cool atmosphere in the cave there were steps to climb up to top of the cave for a scenic view of Ipoh. Pictures of the various Gods were also painted on the cave "ceilings". Impressive!

One of the Taoist worship temple inside a big cave. Not much to see, but this cave is very airy, and on the other side was a lake. I like to stay there because it was always cooler inside

If you have not been to a cave temple, Perak Tong is a good easy place to go. Just outside Ipoh on the main road to Kuala Kangsar bus 35 or 66 from Ipoh bus station, only 1.5 ringett and the bus crew will tell you where to get off. Well decorated caves with gods and other deities and many... More
