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.

Sam Poh Temple Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful temple on the hill top. Peaceful atmosphere. Worth the visit.
The place was beautiful although I didn't explore but the location is on a high hill which gives comfort and satisfaction
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.
A very calm and peaceful place. We visited this place from Cameron Highlands on a 4-day trip. It’s a wise choice to choose this place after the busy usual tourist spots around. The temple is a great example of a fine craftsmanship. You will feel very positive when you are at this place. There are not many restrictions to go inside the temple. You can spend around 20 – 30 minutes in this place. The temple was kept spotlessly clean. The golden statues are very impressive. Since it quite far from access, please arrange a vehicle to go to this place from your place of stay. The layout of the Temple is based on Buddha Mantra. The temple has a large parking place. If you are around this place, it is worth to pay a visit to this place. The view from this hill top temple is amazing as well. There is a small koi pond in the temple. You can buy fish food to feed them. People who are interested in structural architecture will fall in love with it. You can have an amazing view while driving on the way up to this temple. It is a very peaceful environment with cold breeze.
... nice place to walk around with parents ...
