Its situated halfway up the mountain to Genting, this temple is definitely a jewel in the mountain. Nice building along with its sculptures. Nice place to take some photos before you reach Genting or on your way back.

Extensive grounds - Excellent place to spend a few hours outdoors. Be enthralled by the big temple grounds - suggest that you start off by heading towards the Big Buddha where you will find the 18 Luohan along the way and head upwards to view the 10 courts of hell.

this is one place where travellers can really have peace of mind and it is so peaceful and the temperature is so comforting that one can sit for hours doing self meditating or even reading without feeling uncomfortable. The scenery is also so beautiful that if you were to feel bored the scenery will invigorate you.

A very serene temple to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the busy city. Take a walk towards the Buddha and write your wishes on the money tree, after which, you can take the stairs towards the 10 chambers of hell, your journey to enlightenment. You can reflect on your wrongdoings towards others as you see how... More

This is a Buddhist temple and religious site. We enjoyed, I guess is the word, the depiction of the 10 Hells. They are kind of gory-not for young kids. For us, they sparked discussion of sins and consequences. There is also a depiction of the Goddess of Happiness, and some other statues that were nice. We are Christian, so this... More
