It is a quiet and peaceful place to visit. There are several Buddha statues in the main hall as well as adjacent rooms. As the temple is located on a hilltop, it has a nice view of the surrounding areas.

Advise from the lady boss of a restaurant, we walked to the temple which just located nearby the town area. The temple is very peaceful and the opportunity to take a panoramic view of Brinchang town makes my trip even worth it. Please remember to take off your shoes when you visit there. Be sure to check out the koi... More

It was on our tour itinerary to visit this temple. Considering the age of this temple, it looks very new. Its compound is very well kept, clean and tidy. Some monks are living in the temple. There are statues of Buddha, bodhisattva and deity. To enter the main building, you need to take off your shoes. You can light a... More

There were prayers on when I visited so I only went round the edges. You can take stairs up to the level above the temple but it's just a view of all the residential areas. The main problem with this temple is you can never get a good photo of the front because of its position. If it wasn't in... More

If you would like to have a quiet and peaceful place to linger around, this very traditional and buddist temple is a good choice. Located on a hill, it also offers a nice view of the local residential village. The temple is very well maintained and clean. Pay respect to the skillfully crafted and painted statues.

We were told by a local resident that The Sam Poh Wan Futt Chi (Triple Gem) is a Mahayana temple that was built in the 1972 which houses some fine brass statues, including the Main Vairocana Buddha image. It took us about 15 minute to walk from Brinchang town center to find this beautiful Buddhist Temple, on a spot overlooking... More
