The statues are very big and plated with gold. For such a small town the temple consider very grand. Cannot consider an attraction but is a good place for praying.

I'm a Chinese Buddhist & I went with a Muslim friend & a Sikh friend. One of my friends put donation into the box & another one of them offered her sincere prayers even though they are not Buddhists like me. I'm proud of them. So I think when people visit any religion places, please show respect & follow the... More

Sam Poh Buddhist Temple is located in Brinchang. It has a good view on the hill overlooking Brinchang town. Just a 5 minutes drive or 10 minutes walking distance from the main road of Brinchang when you see the Iris Hotel on your left. Sam Poh Temple is clean and well maintained. Inside the hall has lot of different statues,... More

Even though it is the only temple in Brinchang, it is just an ordinary temple. It is located up the hill and not a huge temple. You can come here to offer praying and nothing else you can do here.

Now this is the place to go to if you're looking for a little bit of peace and quiet. It's off the beaten track and try not to visit during any of the Buddhist festivals as it will be pack to the brim. On any off days, the place is free for the public and you have a lot of... More

We just arrived in Brinchang after Tanah Rata and our hotel is not far from the temple so we decided to walk there. It took around 15mins walk for 1km. There is just Chinese buddha there and the view is not really nice. We went there because we found it in tour package. But we are not taking a tour... More

This temple was one of the stops on our tour. Some interesting statues and quiet around the place. We sat there a while and it felt nice to stop by a temple too.
