  • 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。
  • This peaceful and picturesque facility is now connected to the First World Hotel via the new Awana Skyway. A lovely place to take a stroll and enjoy the crisp and fresh air of the rolling mountains.
  • Very nice temple. So peaceful. Was in a hurry and didn't get to try the vegetarian restaurant.
  • Free parking.Free entrance. Amazing location. Awesome weather. The breeze and the aura is definitely great. A worth visiting place. A must visit !!
