It wasn't too bad, but we felt it was just another temple. We did take some nice pictures with the mountains in the background from the top courtyard.

The temple is very interesting, with a great vista back over KL (smog permitting). A gruesome yet gaudy enlightenment path shows you the ten hells, explaining each one. A little more background info in other areas would be nice, but it is a peaceful place to cool down. However it is almost the only thing worth seeing in the Genting... More

This place is really worth a visit. You will feel relaxed, calm and peaceful. For those who stayed at First world, you can take the shuttle bus here. Tips: there's an elevator for the elder and wheel chair. The elevator is near the restaurant

If you can catch the temple at its quietest with not many visitors it is indeed a tranquil place. Built over 18 years of manual labour by the Genting founder TS Dato Lim Goh Tong the temple site is a couple of K's from the peak of Genting and we have stopped on both the drive up and drive down....

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!
