  • Free parking.Free entrance. Amazing location. Awesome weather. The breeze and the aura is definitely great. A worth visiting place. A must visit !!
  • Among all the temples I've visited,this has got to be the best in Malaysia.The cool and breezy weather really soothes your whole body.The best part was the view.There are just mountains as far as the eye can see,it was extraordinary! There are also stalls that sells food and other things such as keychains,phone accessories.There is also a road of enlightenment.It describes the 10 chambers of hell and what it does,if you have committed these awful sins.That part was pretty interesting.Statues of Buddha's and Quan Yin are enormous! You should really visit the temple if you're planning a trip to Genting.
  • Nice temple... Fresh air. You can feel heavens call. Entrance is free.
  • Spacious with good vantage points, plus less smoky, less crowd than the resort. Go down the elevator to B7 to see the huge rock that was split into half and rolled down decades ago.
  • 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.
