Nice temple that extremely peaceful. People around were extremely friendly. Free to roam around with no or very little restrictions. Although, please be careful of bees on the floor if you are going barefoot when entering the hall.

The temple is serene and peaceful. There were lots of different gold statues, and incense burning in the background in memory of those passed on. Remove your shoes before entering the temple halls. The place was quite cool

Located very near to Brinchang Town. Not a very big temple. But there are several nice golden statues to see. Can walk around a little to enjoy the quiet and cool breeze. Inside can do some simple prayers

Perched on a hill, Sam Poh Temple is not exactly easy to access. The temple is surprisingly huge for this small town, and has a commendable facade and interior.

The temple is new but has a certain charm. It is very peaceful. With lots of statues and different places. The kids (3 and 4) loved it as they could play around and got fruits and candy from everyone. If you are close by it...More

You can walk here but it is not a short distance, better get a transportation to here. The temple is not very big, but clean and neat. The God statues are big and gold in color, worth to have a look. Compared to other Chinese...More
