There are a lot of Cave Temples in Ipoh. If you've been to one, it's plenty enough as they are all about the same. A lot of religious people in Ipoh.

Have visited the Kek Lok Tong cave temple many times, and I have always enjoy it. The Kek Lok Tong is situated in a housing area in Gunung Rapat, just on the outskirt of Ipoh town.

There seems to be a fascination with building temples inside caves here. In the caves, it is dark so it is lit up by artificial light. Worth a look but there is nothing that will make one's jaw drop. Be prepared for some climb as there are a lot of steps to reach the top. Bring water! That is my... More
