Basically it's the same concept with the KL's Batu Cave. You got the temple (Buddhist) inside and got to crawl the stairs up to the the above. Nothing really to see here unless you're religious.

Beside Kek Long Tong, this is another cave temple you should visit. The steep climb to the top of the hill was tiring and at times treacherous but you are rewarded with a nice view.

I booked a cab to cover the attractions in Ipoh. After visiting most of the caves, I feel that Perak Cave Temple is the one I loved most and I would rank no 1 in my listing. First of all, I'm a Buddhism and there are many Buddhas in the cave. Next, it's quite cooling in the cave than outside... More

An impressive and beautiful cave temple. It is nice to walk inside the cave and climb the stairs from one side of the mountain to the other side. To come here by taxi from central Ipoh should cost about 15 MR. Taxi drivers will try to convince you to pay about 35 MR for them to wait for you one... More

Second visit. The cave is very open, not claustrophibic at all. The statues are amazing, its a real temple so plenty of people are coming here to preay but tourists are very welcome. Also there is a great path up to the top of the limestone rock with two traditional shelters and a great view of Ipoh and the large... More

The temple was well maintained, with many guan yin & buddha statue for prayers. Inside the main hall was very breezy. Then there was a staircase on the left that will lead to the top of the cave to view the Ipoh city. I did not reach the top of the cave as visitors have to climb a number of... More

One of several caves with temples contained within. I only had time to visit one temple due to a short visit and it was well worth the trip.

This is one of the temple that u won't feel hot inside it as it is in the cave. U can challenge urself by climbing up the hill which is steep n long using the narrow stairs. The scenery would be beautiful when it is early in the morning or at night as u can see the town from the... More
