Cave Religious Site
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.
