We stopped here on the way back from lunch. There is a cool breeze coming out of the cave entrance, beckoning you in. There was no entry fee, but you can make a donation. Inside, there are elaborate statues of Buddha and various other Hindu deities. The walls and ceilings are painted with Chinese minor deities or fairies (that's what... More

Definitely the main sight to visit in Ipoh. Keep it for last unless you want to feel about the other temples as just 'OK' ) Catch bus 35 from Medan Kidd for 1.5RM. The return bus stop is few hundred metres on the right from the temple.

Lovely and cooling temple cave to visit. U can find monkeys if u climb further up the cave. Nice scenary from the top too. Those with high blood pressure have to becareful if u want to climb up the cave to see the scenary. Some parts are slippery as there are water leaking into the cave.

Temple is quaint and nice. The real challenge comes where you can hike up to the top on the limestone hill and catch a breathtaking view.

One of the few stops in our recent Ipoh trip was this wonderful temple which I have wanted to visit for the longest time. The first sight that greeted us were the monkeys and there were plenty of them at the trees near the car park. Being an OKU (Orang Kurang Upaya, ie.person with disabilities) my husband (who can drive)... More

One of the most interesting temples I've visited in Malaysia. The murals on the temple walls are in good condition - I suspect the dim lighting helps in this regard. Some of them really are beautifully rendered. Lots to explore - I like how the murals synch with the natural shape of the caves. Took the steps to the top,... More

After a heavy lunch, we decided to go Perak Cave Temple. We went there for prayers, then we made our way up the steps to the top of the cave/ hill. There were a few verandas, make sure you hike to the highest one. The way to the highest peak is slightly hidden, there's stairs on both sides of the... More

We went in at 4.20pm, just before they close at 5pm. The Perak Cave Temple was beautiful with some walls in the cave painted. It was cooling inside the cave. However, we should have brought along some mosquito patch as some of us were bitten by mosquitoes. As they were closing, we were only allowed to climb up mid-way. Still... More

It's good to visit for once but not many times. Besides inside the cave, the kids like to see the fish in the pond. It is ok for short visit.
