Step inside Perak Cave Temple to discover giant Buddha statues, Taoist idols, and paintings daubed on the walls among the craggy limestone formations. At the back of the temple chamber, climb a steep set of 246 winding steps, which lead to an open cave offering sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. At the temple entrance, admire the colorful Chinese architecture and the tranquil Japanese pond, home to carp and turtles, which represent longevity. Monks and nuns still reside in this cave, discovered by a Chinese monk in 1890.

  • Visit Ipoh a little time I had visited the cave in and enshrined, such as Buddha, Buddhist paintings drawn on the wall. I think that it is worth a visit in the temples of Japan, not.

  • Easily accessed from Medan Kidd bus station (just ask the people there and they'll tell you the next bus). The caves are well maintained and offers super views!!
  • Maybe it's not worth the journey but if you are in Ipoh you should not miss this temple. Impressive cave and 414 stairs to the top of the hill.
  • Amazing cave temple with lovely murals. make sure you get to the peak and I mean all the way to the top.
  • I am a local who's been living in Ipoh for more than 30 years but I have only visited this place twice. It's location is a problem, too far from anywhere interesting and it's not worth the time travelling here to look at some similar caves and structures that you can see in other places in Ipoh.
  • Cool cave...save yourself from the scorching heat outside....take the flight of stairs to reach the goddess at the top....bit that's not the top of the hill....yet a good view if commercialisation all around !!
