This temple was just 300m off of the main road and if you are in the area you can take a quick look. On the way up the hill there is a sign warning visitors of wild dogs but we did not see any. There are many statues and a particular large one of a God before you reach the temple.

Not worth going out of your way to distinctly come here, although it is quite peaceful and pretty. It’s not very big so you won’t spend ages, but it’s free to enter and there’s barely anyone here which makes it quite authentic. All in all, if you’re passing by you can come here for half an hour or so (if that) but if you’re not in Brinchan then don’t make a special visit.

Visited this temple twice on 07 and 08 July 2020. Disappointed that it was not opened as both gate entrances were shut.

Didn't notice any notices displayed outside but there were lorries and construction materials on the side of the temple. Not sure if it was closed for renovation or what.

We had a car so it was easy to get to - not sure it's worth walking to, though, if you don't have a vehicle. We were the only ones there.

Most likely not the biggest or most impressive temple in Asia. But for us as first-timers in Malaysia it was nice to see and informative. There are a lot of signs with English information on them.

Hi there, I’m a full-time traveller that stayed twice in Cameron Highlands for several weeks. I walked every single trail here, and realized there’s an incredible amount of incorrect information and confusion out there. Times are incorrect, trail info incorrect (even on the signs), and people (incl. the local tourism office) seems to be unclear of trail names and which exist and which ones don’t.

So, I made it my goal to walk each and every one of them and made many notes. A full hiking guide including an entirely updated map (+ other info on transportation / accommodation / food / other activities / traveling the Cameron Highlands for FREE) can be found on the site that is my username + /cameron-highlands (links will get blocked here).

As Sam Poh is reached by trail 2, here some up-to-date trail info:

Trail info: This is one of the very well indicated jungle trails on the slope of Gunung Berembun, connecting with trail 3. Suggested combination: 2-3-7 or 2-3-8 (or the other way around) over the Berembun peak. Accurately available on the Maps.me app.

Beginning & end: Get the public yellow bus from Tanah Rata to Brinchang (or the other way around), but get off earlier at the Swamy Temple (see photo on the left), then walk to the Sam Poh Temple, which is worth a quick look. You’ll see written on the walls where trail 2 starts, incl. arrows, but you can also find it back on Maps.me. You have to climb some stairs, past the buildings that keep on expanding, swallowing the trail more and more... There are plenty of signs along the way, so you won’t get lost. The trail ends at a jungle intersection where you can take a short bit of trail 3 back into Brinchang or continue to the peak of Gunung Berembun (recommended).

Experience / Level of difficulty: Short but intense. This is not as long as the signs suggest and wouldn’t take up your entire day, but man, it’s hard. Just how I like it. Lots of hand-and-feet-work and Tarzan-jumps. It’s more fun going up than down, which is also safer when it’s slippery after heavy rainfall. Careful where you put your hands, as I did spot some snakes sliding away from me (they generally only attack when you approach them, touch them or corner them – they’re harmless animals if you simply let them be and give them space). It’s a forest walk without views.

Time: 41 minutes – going up.

We were there base on the relatively good reviews. Nothing really much unless you're a sincere Buddhism. Nice place to shoot some nice photographs. Time spent; 1/2 hour

Temple is in a very quiet surroundings. Beautifully carved idols of could be seen inside the temple. But not many tourists or locals were seen there. It would be nice to visit this temple if you have time.
