Peaceful and tranquility. A nice place to visit after the busy usual tourist spot. Great to see fine craftsmanship from the temple building.

Visited and prayed for safety during trip to Cameron Highlands. Just like typical temple, recommend to go for prayer, and one of the leisure time you can do at Cameron Highlands.

As temples go this one is pretty basic. Went here as part of a day tour but wouldn’t go if I was organizing it myself.

This temple has been long in place, all I see are solid foundational history left behind by authentic practitioners. Feel positively energised after visiting the temple!

Very nice and quite temple, beautiful to look at. Bathrooms don’t have toilet paper but I think it’s common across Malaysia.

When you are in Cameron Highlands try to find some time to visit this temple located just outside Brinchang town. Not a big temple but it is a clean & well maintained Taoist temple. Once in the temple you will feel a calmness and serenity,...More

It’s a well maintained and moderately sized temple. We spend about 15-20mins walking around and taking some photo.

You have two further options. 1. Download the Grab app then you will be able to summons a taxi each way. 2. Summons a taxi to take you to the temple and then ask them what they would charge to wait for you. There is no guarantee they will get another fare if they just drop you off so waiting for you is an easy option. Dozing in cars is quite common for taxi drivers.
