This was probably my 10th visit to the Highlands and finally found time to make a visit to Sam Poh Temple. Well worth it: clean, quiet, and encourages meditation. Not a "must visit" but worth your while!

A temple for Buddhist worshippers. Very huge temple where you can donate a small amount of money (RM5) for a pack of joss sticks.

Nice temple to visit, it's impressive and beautifull. Go in the morning, as its very calm. In the afternoon more tourist tours are passing

Slightly hot we decided to visit the temple. There are many statues explained very well. It is easy to access but missis a the mystical feeling other temples have. If you are in the Cameron highlands I suggest to take half an hour and visit the temple.

Colourful and gorgeous, still tranquil. Kept clean by the parishioners Must have spent quite a time and effort to build this temple on a hidden slope behind the scene..

The environment is clean and nice, they provide information about all the different kinds of statues in English which are quite rare in other Buddhist temple. Do stop by and try divination with sticks that located in 2'oclock position

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.
