My kids love going to see the cave temples. They all start to look the same after awhile though. If you only get to see one cave, stay closer to KL and visit Batu.

Be prepared to CLIMB steep stairs to the top. Not recommended to climb when rainy, dangerous, the place is clean and well preserved, high ceilings and beautiful caves. There's two sides of the top, one is the view with the factory, the other side where you have to climb up some man made stairs, the view is breathetaking.

Quite a stunning place. Limestone cave. I think the best sightseeing in Ipoh. Feels very peaceful here. This is one of the places that make you understand that you cannot beat nature when it comes to beauty. Yes, Oprah House beautiful, but this God's creation of pure natural beauty crated by nature is just stunning as well. I took my 71 year mum as well and she was able to climb the stairs as well as the stairs are not very steep and not too many of them. Has a big garden area on the bottom, again very peaceful with lotus and all. Try walking on the pebbled walkway. Its quite therapeutic for your feet but the further you go the pebbles are placed more closely and smaller pebbles used and hence it becomes harder to walk on them. The belief is that you are walking on the pebbles to pay off your penance or something like that.

There seems to be confusion on the reviews of these temples with several different temples under the one generic review.
I visited the temple at N04 38.656 E101 05.961.
An impressive buddhist tempke in the natural limestone cave system.
Nice and cool, well lit, with easy access.
You will be rubbing shoulders with the locals as they go about their devotions.
It had many galleries with excellent statues, paintings & artifacts.
The grand finale is a climb up 400 odd steps to a view of the valley from the top.
Friendly staff.
Don't forget a donation please.
