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!
