    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.

    En-route to Genting Highlands, just a few minutes to our destination is this peaceful haven of quietness and beauty. If you are familiar with Chinese traditions, there is a huge statue of the 如来佛 Buddha。
