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.

  • 1. Begin in year 1926. 2. Temple is well maintained. Fortune teller is available. So you may want to try it out. 3. Do try to climb the cave, steps is created for a easy climb. 4. Easy to climb up but is a challenge when you come down. 5. Bare in mind it is a short climb of approx 30 minutes with stop in between. 6. Please bring bottle water, you will need it. 7. Do not climb when the steps is wet. It will be slippery. 8. Parking is not free, I just pay rm 1.

  • Worth visiting during non school holiday and public holidays. It's quiet and calm. Clean.

  • 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! 😢

  • 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.

  • 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.
