Similar to Batu Caves, there is an option to climb a few stairs to get a panoramic view of Ipoh city. There is a person asking for "donations" at the beginning of the steps, which honestly felt quite forceful. The view is nice from the top, but there is a huge factory that seems to have overtaken half the city,... More

I am a local who's been living in Ipoh for more than 30 years but I have only visited this place twice. It's location is a problem, too far from anywhere interesting and it's not worth the time travelling here to look at some similar caves and structures that you can see in other places in Ipoh.

Better than the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur. Nice to visit, but not really big. Free toilets available, a lot of parking space as well.

To go up the top of the temple, we were asked to put some donations into the donation box which is situated on the stairs. The lady will not allow those who don't donate to go up. This is basically entrance fee. Donations should be voluntary and not forced.

Serene environment in limestone cave. Things are tad worn and touristy but still worth a visit just to see the tortoises in the centre of the cave.

Peaceful and relaxing, a nice place to visit and get away from everything. Best to avoid crowds and go when there are less people visiting

Took a cab to the temple from city, about 20mins, nothing much to see and just do my prayer there. No cab parking there, luckily got the cab contact and he drove back to pick us up.

Malaysia is trying somehow to become a tourist destination like its Thai and Singaporian neighbor but the people involved in tourism are hopeless. There are many example throughout the country and this place is one of them. First of all on paper they only open from 8 to 5pm, disallowing potential visitor to see the view at best times for...

Firstly, disregard any advert that appears on the Tripadvisor site offering you a tour to this place for £124. We got a taxi round trip for about £6. Go early in the morning. The cave opens at 8 o'clock, but the place will still be getting ready for the day. Enjoy the hustle and bustle. The stairs up through the... More
