Sam Poh Temple, Cameron Highlands Reviews

  • If you want a Chinese style temple, but can't get to China, this is definitely a good place to check out!

  • Came here many years ago as a teen and loved it because it's serene, peaceful and quiet with only the sound of wind chimes. I visit with this place each time I'm in Cameron Highlands.

  • Very clean, very quiet, very peaceful, very beautiful place. Visit and you'll know about Chinese religion.

  • Beautiful place for tourists to take pictures, but it isn't too well kept. Had to walk bare feet and the steps toward the temple were wet.

  • Nice Budist temple to visit if you are in the area. Architecture is not very spectacular but is nice to see if you have never been before in a budist temple or you want to remember the experience.
