My favourite cave temple in Ipoh. Very impressive caves and temple but you should also walk up the top of the cliffs for great views over Ipoh and the countryside.

Beautiful cave, main area is just very noisy with shouting selfie-takers with no respect for this holy place. The climb to the top is beautiful and way more quiet. Lots of steps, but the view is worth it. Easy to reach from the city's bus...More

For those wanting to take the bus. No.35 drops you off opposite the temple. No. 31 will take you back to Ipoh centre. Stand near the big tree near the exit of the temple
