  • Mesmerised by the structure of temple, statue, history of temple & cave. Very clean, well maintained and must visit. Had a good time.  more »
  • Nice place to visit when go to Ipoh. Natural caves, first time here. The caves are impressive and peaceful.  more »
  • Not a very big place but good for a visit. Rocks formation is so so. Be in casual gear in case you want to hike up to the top. Steep slopes with rugged steps but proper. Breathtaking view at the peak
  • This is a very interesting and beautiful temple. Really interesting to look at all of the religious decor and the natural structures. We enjoyed spending time looking around here. Try to get there before 4 PM so you can climb the stairs inside the tunnel. There are no fees here.
