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.

We had some spare time and decided to walk up here from Brinchang. It's an easy and quiet (although not particularly beautiful) walk. The temple itself is new, quiet and pleasant. It was nice enough lingering for a bit and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere. We enjoyed it better than the commercialized tourist "farms" of the area. That said, it's nothing... More

We stopped there on our way to trail 2. It was busy with ceremonies due to the lunar new year and made it very lively with chantings and people praying. The temple is indeed very new looking. It is very colorful and has many golden statues. Some of the statues have explanations which makes it interesting if you need more... More

I visited many temples, this one is OK but nothing extraordinary. Good to see if taking hiking trail 2 or if visiting Brinchang for other reasons.
