Perak Cave Temple - Review

One of the most gorgeous Ipoh attraction the Perak cave Temple is a mesmerizing sight of several caves that have been converted into temples. To be precise, there are thirty caves temples at this sight. It is a result of an initiative by Chong Sen Yee and his wife Choong Chan Yoke who actually discovered the caves. On approaching the Government officials, they further developed this place to what it is today. Apart from the caves, a 40-feet high Buddha is the highlight of this attraction. The interiors are stunningly enhanced by oriental murals and even calligraphy. The entire sight is pretty with all its pavilions perched on limestone hills looking over the gazebos. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Ipoh itinerary 1 day.

Perak Cave Temple, Ipoh Reviews

  • Chinese Buddhist temple... Just like all other temples. But here you will climb at least 200 steps to reach to the top of the hill that the temple and the cave are located in. .. One of Ipoh amazing places.

  • Cool respite from the heat in the valley where Ipoh sits in. The sculptures and paintings inside invites you to stand awhile to admire even if you're not a believer. Take a walk into "heaven" and "hell". It's cool! Beyond the inner sanctum, walk up to the cliffs and enjoy the view of Ipoh and it's surroundings. Sad to see many more mountains cleared, I believe for the prized granite. (Some photos I posted earlier) I hope the government will balance environment and economics better! 😢

  • It takes approximately an hour to visit this spacious temple that has been built into the limestone caves of Gunung Tasek. The entrance to the temple is beautifully made. Inside the cave are wall paintings and many statues, with prayer stools prepared for devotees. Burning joss sticks is not allowed except to the 15-meter golden Buddha statue. A narrow staircase of 450 steps (accessible 9am-4pm) leads to the top of the limestone hill, from which visitors can enjoy a view of the city. There is no charge for visiting the temple, but you may be approached to pay a parking fee and donations are welcomed.

  • Very serene and peaceful place of worship. Calming of mind. Cooling place to explore and climb up for a great view at top of the caves.

  • Nice temple as covered by other reviews. Beware of wild monkeys at hill top who tried to attack me when I did not provoke them.
