Perched up on a hill, Sam Poh is a Buddhist temple that offers the visitors a place to calm the mind and detach away from the hectic city life. A small donation can be made and in return, they will light up an oil candle to be placed on a table inside the prayer hall. In case you have not... More

This Buddhist temple on a hill in Brinchang overlooks the town. It is the 4th largest temple in Malaysia and houses a large statue of Lord Buddha and some brass statues of arahats. A peaceful place to visit if you have some time on your hands.

A very impressive Chinese temple situated up the hill, tucked behind some residential area. Follow the roads signs. A few scenic spots for pictures. The temple is huge in size considering the population of Brinchang.

We visited on a weekday so was great as we have the temple to ourselves. The brief explanation to each of the statue was helpful. Temple and iits ground all well maintained. Nice view of the town and surrounding valley from here.
