We were pleasantly surprised how cool this place is. The grounds and temple are very well kept and clean and it's FREE- even for parking. It was much cooler than KL and we really enjoyed the fresh air. The statues are interesting and the carved pillars inside the cave temple are amazingly beautiful. I would recommend!

'Chin Swee' literally means very beautiful in the local chinese dialect. Indeed the temple stood magnificently 4600 feet above sea level.We were greeted by many statues of different deities/goddess as it is a Taoist temple.There is a statue of Guan Yin-God of Mercy and a statue of Buddha seated at the serene corner of temple.The air is cool and crisp...
