This big cave is clean and windy. It is worth a visit. Unlike Sam Poh Cave which is quite run down, Kek Lok See has more tourists.

A calm and peaceful cave temple. There is also a garden with a pond to walk around but beware of the monkeys. Bought fish food to feed the fish in the pond but the monkeys came at me for the food.

Take a GRAB taxi to reach the cave temple, entrance is free, beware of the monkeys, the limestone formation is really beautiful and it can stir your imagination, with peaceful zen garden and a cooling feel inside the cave

Just a lovely way to spend an hour or so. The cave is made more pleasant by the lovely breeze which flows through there. The gardens are relatively peaceful, slightly marred by the rock crushing that is gong on I the background. Reflexology path is...More

The roads are wide enough for a Tour bus to drive in and the car park is pretty large.

The entry is free, you can buy some fish food to feed the carp. I believe the local businesses and community upkeep the temple through their patronage. You may make offerings and it is strictly voluntary.
