Buddhism is an integral part to the cultural and religious history of Malaysia. Quite understandably, even Cameron has well known Buddhist temples that exude spirituality. Perched high on a hill, the Sam Poh Temple looks stunning as it overlooks Brinchang town. Built in 1972, this temple claims to be the 4th largest Buddhist temple in the country. As you would expect, there is a huge statue of Buddha inside, which is revered by devotees. The temple looks serene amidst its picturesque backdrop.

  • Great temple, one of the biggest and beautiful I've ever been in Malaysia of its kind. There are a lot of statues and each of them have different meaning. The walls with swastika framed and handmade decorated tiles it's just amazing. Never seen anything like that before.

  • Nice little temple, made up of about 4 buildings. Quite a long windy road up to get to it but worth a visit. There is no charge but there is donation boxes. They have toilets and sinks. They have quite a few statues including lots of Buddha, a turtle and a pagoda.

  • A very peaceful and tranquil place to visit. We had the place to ourselves for most of our visit. Would definitely recommend this place to everyone to visit. 5 minutes from the main raid, you would think it was further as there is no noise from the road.

  • A conducive place for meditation. A place for retreat. Friendly and hardworking ordained community.

  • I like the environment here is quite nice. It not crowley so you can take a good rest here. The view here also nice.
