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... read more

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...

It's a very huge cave. Should visit it if you're never been there. There small little steps leading up the cave but we didn't go because we had small kids.

This temple sealed my love of cave temples. I can't quite put into words how organically beautiful and peaceful this temple is. I had read the reviews of others before I went and in my opinion many did not do it justice. I loved it!

An impromptu visit to Perak Cave temple! Advisable to wear sports attire if you want to climb to the peak! Lots of Buddhist statues upon entering the cave.

The facade of this temple will awe you. A big statue of Kuan Yin in a pool greets you when you enter the premises.The statues and the paintings on the cave wall will amaze you.

The temple is basically inside the cave. And the end of the cave, you can climb up the stairs and you'll get the outside view. There few rest areas at the top. Stairs kinda slippery due to the water dripping (its a cave, a lot of water sipping in especially after rainy days). If you care to donate, you get... More

As you turn into the courtyard, it looks quite plain. A sandy place to park your car. You have to climb a staircase to enter the cave. Just very ordinary. But as you enter the gates to the cave, you are greeted with a nice calm view of a very large Buddha statue. The cool air helps enhance the experience.... More
