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

Well worth a visit. This is a spectacular place to see, we really enjoyed our day here. The caves are clean and well lit, many photo opportunities within the caves and the surrounding areas. Also go into Ipoh town where you will find wonderful pomelo.

The best caves in Ipoh. In one day, we visited Perak Cave, Sam Poh Cave, Nam Thean Cave... and Perak Cave is recommended. The cave/temple is well kept, clean, serene. Tourist are allowed climb uphill via the stairs, which are quite steep at some locations. It is a challenge for older folks, but great for youngsters and adventurers.

Inside, it was very temple-like with drawings, writing and statues that are related to the Buddhist faith. The cave is rather huge and it was cooling. There is an option to climb uphill. We had to give a donation, any amount, to be able to climb uphill. Honestly, the climb uphill was using stairs. The stairs were narrow and slightly... More

Enjoyed my time in this cave. The cave houses several Buddha statues and it is kind of huge. Behind the statues is a stairways for travelers to walk uphill. Do note that the steps are kind of hard to climb up (we decided to stop halfway and return down). I heard from my brother that 3 steps make up 80%... More
