  • It's not as famous as the Sam Poh Tong cave, but it was actually very well maintained. Plenty of stalactites and stalagmites. The garden at the back was a surprise.  more »

  • A very nice temple complex in a lime stone cave with a superb garden. The garden also serve as a recreational park for jogging and etc. There is a foot reflexology path and a pond. The garden is on the other side of the mountain, so you must walk through the cave. A garden is a great place to relax and enjoy the views of greenery and the million years old lime stone mountain. It is very maintained so it looks very clean and neat.
  • Well maintained. Easy parking. Nice walk in the caves and at the garden.
  • Panoramic lime stone cave turned into temple of worshippers as well as recreational park (jogging and foot reflexology track, fish pond). The park is on the other side of the mountain, so visitor must pass through the cave. A very relaxing views of greenery embedded into the million old lime stone mountain. Landscaping, toilets and cleanliness nicely managed by private group.
  • It's free but clean and well managed. In my opinion, this way is the most spectacular limestone cave in Ipoh. Must have a short time here and feel how creative the natural is.
  • A very picturesque place that has exquisite and beautiful ancient Chinese architectures. Very unique to the Malaysian Chinese community. Great place to relax in.
