  • By using the natural cave temple. Really is like a Chinese-style, first touched by cave. The Interior of the mountain and leave a huge cave. During the Buddha and Kannon, a droopy. Exudes atmosphere and magnificent scenery. Stairs leading to the mountains on the back side and from the top overlooking city. I think it is worth a visit because it is easy to understand, and on the side of the road.

  • Ipoh railway station near Medan Kidd 32 departing every hour from the bus ride away, and the bus number is subject to change, please confirm the boarding. When you go, you can go comfortably, as the schedule is Ipoh city strikes back when even on the same bus, buses couldn't know tightness when it comes a problem. Across the street from where the bus made the largest Center, under a large tree of the roadside car Center wait the bus.

  • A site to visit. My first time visiting a temple built in a cave. Quite amazing. I love all the statues and drawing on cave walls. Then there is this series of stairs from inside the cave all the way up to the top of the mountain. Though I didn't make it all the way up, my friends who did said the view from the top is amazing. Warning those with young children or elderly, you may not want to go up there. It's a long climb and it get steeper and steeper as you go. Once you walk around the cave and made the climb, there is pretty much nothing else to see. Then we just left for Gunung Lang Recreational Park after. We spend total about 1 hr here.
  • Mysterious caves and gigantic idols. Visitors can attempt the mildly strenuous climb to the upper altar. Worth the effort. Contributions to temple upkeep most appreciated.
  • Perak Cave Temple 霹靂洞 Nice cave temple. My advise young & elderly please don't climb up the cave step to middle or top of the cave. Was here on 20Nov2017
  • The cave was amazing!! There are a lot of grafitti of buddhist deity on the wall. U need to reach the top of that mountain. It is a photographer heaven!! But be cautious, the stairs are steep and there a long way to the top. U need to pay for the toilet.
  • Good landscape & nice temple in a cave. Requied certain level of fitness to climb up to the hill

Where to stay in Ipoh

The main concentration of lodgings in Ipoh currently cluster in the newly developed sections of town. Beware of a proliferation of hotels in Ipoh attributing generous stars to their names--a practice that doesn't necessarily reflect the quality of some of the establishments. Do your research in advance to avoid disappointment. The range of available options is huge, with several Ipoh hotels catering to different budgetary needs. The luxury hotels here often have annexed spa and wellness treatment centers.
