Good Experience 1) Nice decorations. In the darkness night, between the trees; there is the light with different colors. 2) The sound of the ocean, making it a peaceful place to be. Note 1) Please be aware of your steps. As the trail is a bit dark. 2) Not so much maintenance nowadays. 3) The parking is a bit tricky. If you park outside, it may cost you RM5.00 (given to some "smuggler"). However if you want to park inside (temple's compound), you need to drive between local Chinese houses.

Lighting setup was brilliant and pictures are captured beautifully. Paid RM5 for parking entrance. No fee for the temple entrance.

💯 to whoever it was, who conceptualised what he read & saw, to design this garden, and put it on the tourist map. Who says watching TV is bad for you, huh, huh?? A cross between a scene from Avatar and the LED rose garden in Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Seoul, this garden attracted some curious locals. Photographs can be amazing, after lots of edits! Otherwise, there is nothing much here. But, for an entry fee of RM1/person, don't just take my word for it.... just go, then YOU yourself can claim there is nothing much here 😂 Tip : parking is a problem, because there're residential flats in the area. Park at Tesco, and take a slow 7min walk (500m) to the Gardens. There is a well-lit, wide pedestrian path. Tesco car park is FOC and closes at 1am. Bigger Tip : Go early, have dinner at Pearl Garden first, which is just beside the Garden. The crabs are pretty good. The Garden lights up from 8pm.

Not recommended. Imagine the parking hassle, and having to pay RM5 for it and you end up spending only about 15 mins at most walking around. That’s all. It’s just a small area, with friendly dogs around the temples. Please don’t drive all the way here for this unless if you are around the area.

I have heard a lot about this place from my friends and I finally had a chance to visit it. This place has horrible parking and before you enter you will need to pay a small maintenance fee. I got kinda turned off even before I went in so I hoped that the view would be worth it. The creative light decorations do create a nice view at night but the walk can be dangerous as it is quite dark. Overall, this garden does provide a nice view but in my opinion the cons outweigh the pros. Horrible parking, can be quite crowded and dark. Dangerous for small kids and elderly with trouble walking.
