Very sad visit. I remember when I was young this place was full of life. Today it isn't lively any more. We were the only visitors there that Saturday morning. Entrance was free. We bought a bunch of kangkung for the turtles and walked to the backyard where the turtles are. Place was solemn. Not easy to feed the turtles too as the bars are tall. I asked the lady who cares for the place, why are there no people here now? She said public holidays there are more. Hmmmm.

I was here almost 30 years ago. I remembered the turtle pond was a round one. It is sad that today it has become half only. However the overall structure of this temple remains the same. You can buy Kang Kung and fish food for feeding at a very cheap price. It is suitable for bringing children to visit.

An interesting place to visit because it is authentic and still well-visited by locals from near and far. It is one of a few temples in the area built into the cliffs, and good representation of architecture of these temples. Buy some vegetables at the entrance to feed the tortoises in the courtyard; surprisingly fun activity.

Nothing much to see and small in stature compared to other cave temples in Ipoh unless you just go there to pray. Do check out others when you are here in Ipoh especially Kek Lok Tong. It's easily accessible from the main road

The temple is large but not all places are accessible to public. There is a garden at the front of the temple and we bought fish food to feed the many fishes in the pond. There is also a turtle pond, you have to walk through the main hall to get there. We had some fun feeding the turtles vegetables.
