Built on the side of the mountain on the way to the Genting Highlands the temple complex had magical and breathtaking views up and down the mountain especially when the mist came in. The 'chambers of hell' are quite graphic and depict the Buddhist principles of being good and bad and the rather torturous consequences. The very large Buddha was... More

I'm not religious, but this place is an example of the power of belief. They don't charge money to enter, as is everything else in Genting, and it is the only place there that is well maintained. The sites are breath taking and the people there can comprehend the English language. The only place I enjoyed while wasting my time... More

Easy to get there from the First World Hotel/ Theme Park. There's a free shuttle bus that goes to the Chin Swee Temple about every 30 minutes. Entrance is free. It would be nice to linger there awhile and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and great view if one has time to spare.

One discovers initially that the complex provides accommodation and a large vegetarian restaurant of un known stature. It is easy to spend a couple of hours here as there is much to see for those who are... More

Chin Swee Caves temple actually has three temples, namely The Buddha temple, Four Heavenly Knights temple, and Chin Swee Master Temple (roughly translated). It was a mere 5 minute drive to the temple, and I would recommend spending 2 hours here. You could... More

The architecture of the temple is wonderful. Once in Genting highlands, don't forget to have a look at this magnificent building.
