While it was a nice stop, it wasn't really anything to go out of your way to see. If you're in the area anyway, definitely, stop and see and absorb some local culture. But don't drive a long time to get there or set your hopes high that you will be stunned.

Few visitors when we were there. Wind chimes, peace and serenity. Many of the temples we have visited were over-run with tourists. This one was delightful.

It's a nice and quite place for people praying. Recommend to go by car instead of walk. It located at the top of hill which take some times to walk there.

Highly recommended for Buddhist and Taoist practitioners. Very peaceful environment for self-reflection. I think the temple is a Taoist one.

This is a big temple, well maintained. It's nice to stroll around, it's really quiet there. Take some pictures. And that's all you can do there...

We stayed nearby so it was worthwhile a visit. We went at the end of the day and we where the only visitors. It had a nice atmosphere, was clean and neat and very peacefull. Lots of "Golden" statues.

For those of you tired with agricultural attractions, this temple makes an interesting diversion. The building is nothing special but there are some huge impressive statues.

Temple is nice , especially colorful! The place is quite and offers panoramic view of the town. It's very small so you don't need more that 15min to visit it.

Driving from Tanah Rata towards the Brinchang town, passing the Cameron Highlands Golf Course, as one approaches the town Brinchang, one can see the Iris House Hotel on the right. The road on the right side here will lead one to the Sam Poh Buddhist Temple in a distance of 300 meters. A temple with yellow wall can be seen.... More
