  • One of the must visiting place in Genting. Amazing scenic beauty with peace of mind. One can go with free bus servece from Hotel First from Genting. Free d Bus service is available in every 1 hr. Except 1 PM.
  • Temple at the hilltop of Genting Highland built by the founder of the Highland for devotees to pray.There is a giant Buddha statue and different statue representing the after life hell. Housing few prayer hall , it indeed a calm place for meditation for devotees. Free shuttle bus from temple to First World hotel from 9am to 9pm on daily basis and on hourly basis. Wait at entrance beside the Vegetarian Restaurant at Level 12L. No advance booking is required. Just hop-in the bus when it arrived. It took only a mere 10 minutes to reach to First World Hotel , the only stop. Similar bus shuttle service available from First World Hotel to this temple every hour , wait at hotel entrance.Last trip from hotel is 9pm. There were 3-4 stalls selling finger food here ranging from RM2-RM5 per unit. The vegetarian restaurant of the temple only receive cash and not credit card as it is a form of donation to the temple. Restaurant food range from RM11 to RM22 per dish. Parking were limited if you come from hill top but ample of parking space if you came from Kuala Lumpur as there were 2 different entrance at different car park of the temple.However parking is free of charge.
  • The facilities were nice and the views from the temple were cool. Get to the top of the tower and you can feel the cool breeze of wind. To get to the temple, there's free shuttle bus from first world hotel. Wait at the lobby there and you can spot free shuttle bus forth and back from the temple.
  • The place isn't well known. You could find free shuttle bus (round-trip) from Genting Highland-First World Hotel to reach this temple. Great scenery like above the clouds.
  • Cool and calm and peaceful place. Awesome experience
