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 temple was spotlessly clean and had a welcoming energy. I happened to be there when some of the monks were chanting and it was a soothing experience.

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.

It is just another temple, nothing really special about it but for some strange reason, it is heavily crowded with tourist during weekends. There are also a lot of opportunistic stalls lining the road on approach to the temple, which sells gifts & momentos commonly found in Cameron Highlands & some buddhist related pieces.

I like the serenity of the place and the view of Brinchang from up there. You might want to work out those legs by climbing the stairs at the back of the temple.

This is a lovely temple but nothing special. If you have time on a return from a hike or the tea plantations, stop in.

The temple is only 3 years old built on the site of the original much smaller wooden temple. Some nice statues and very peaceful worth a stop to have a look around especially if you are setting off to do jungle walk #2 as this is basically where it starts.
