Perak Cave Temple, Ipoh Reviews

  • A site to visit. My first time visiting a temple built in a cave. Quite amazing. I love all the statues and drawing on cave walls. Then there is this series of stairs from inside the cave all the way up to the top of the mountain. Though I didn't make it all the way up, my friends who did said the view from the top is amazing. Warning those with young children or elderly, you may not want to go up there. It's a long climb and it get steeper and steeper as you go. Once you walk around the cave and made the climb, there is pretty much nothing else to see. Then we just left for Gunung Lang Recreational Park after. We spend total about 1 hr here.

  • The view at the top of the cave hill ia awesome. Give it a shot, it only takes about 20 minutes to climb the carved/cemented staircases. ­čĹŹ

  • Apart from checking out things inside the cave, a bit of climbing up the chimney-like rock-carved staircase will take you to the top of the hill to enjoy a panoramic view of the landscape

  • Mysterious caves and gigantic idols. Visitors can attempt the mildly strenuous climb to the upper altar. Worth the effort. Contributions to temple upkeep most appreciated.

  • The cave was amazing!! There are a lot of grafitti of buddhist deity on the wall. U need to reach the top of that mountain. It is a photographer heaven!! But be cautious, the stairs are steep and there a long way to the top. U need to pay for the toilet.
