Nice place to walk around to see the architecture. Entrance fees are pretty reasonable. Quite interesting to find a castle near Ipoh.

The castle has a beautiful story behind, and the architecture is quite interesting to check out, the place is not big since it is unfinished, but still a good quick stop to learn a little about the history.

Easiest way is to take a taxi. There is a bus coming in this area but it's a long and tedious journey despite not far from Ipoh.
