  • Very nicely done up! Interesting walk through the 10 stages of hell - Journey to enlightenment. A large statue of Buddha, Goddess of mercy and 18 lohans, a lot of other statues depicting wealth, longevity and happiness. The pagoda is the highlight of the place. Easily accessible from the new Chin Swee Cable car station which is a free stopover as part of the one way cable car ride.
  • It's a very nice place to visit during your trip to Genting Highland. We prayed at the temple for good luck and blessings. I believe the place were made up of Buddhist, Taoist and Confucius teaching.
