Wonderful cave. Lovely place to rest at a hot sunny day. Love the drawing on the cave walls. It is really well drawn and protected.

Went there late but managed to climb up to see the scenery and pay a respect to all the "God" there. Amaze with the structure and need to say: Respect to those who re-furnish the place. Not an easy job

The chinese cave temple isn't as old as I thought it would be, but it certainly is impressive. I enjoyed being able to light an offering of incense to the different deities, and the statues themselves were undoubtedly spectacular. I didn't like the pool at...More

This place is a must-go for first-time visitors to Ipoh. The cave turned out to be larger than expected. Fit ones should climb up all the way to the top of the hill.

Perak Cave temple or Perak Tong as locals call is one of the places to visit in Ipoh other than another cave temple in Ipoh itself. The interior has been refurbished and you can walk up the stairs to the top to see the view....More

I've seen many caves. This is not the most beautiful I've seen. But nonetheless worth having a look. It's a very spacious cave though. With lots of Buddhist statues. It's clean, easy to walk around and well maintained. Easy cave for old and young.

One of the best temple we have visited so far. There's lot of art work on the walls. As you walk through the cave there are steps to lead you up the mountain where the view is magnificent. It's a bit of an exercise but...More

The temple itself is fascinating and atmospheric, but the outside walk up to the summit for the views is the best bit. There is a windy staircase that warns visitors with heart conditions to think again before commencing and I can see why. The humidity...More

We took a taxi to the temple and our immediate perception was 'yet another temple'. However, as soon as we walked up the stairs to the entrance, it became clear that this was different. The entrance hides the cave, but it is very large and...More

This is a well-maintained set of caves with walkable steps to the top, which has a view of the town. Plan to spend 1 hour at least

there is monkey but i don c bats
Hi.. are video recordings allowed in the temple ? I'm a 49 year old Malaysian Chinese Independent film maker and i'm about to start a 2 week SOLO riding trip across our beautiful country.. As a concerned citizen and BEING SICK OF OUR LOCAL POLITICS WITH ALL THE RACIAL OVERTONES, i've decided to make a short film on what it is, THAT MAKES MALAYSIA SO INCREDIBLY AWESOME !!... I'm hoping this video will remind most Malaysian's about not just the BEAUTY of our country but also of it's PEOPLE as well.. Fire cannot be fought with fire and the only way to counter the hatred caused by our Politicians, is with the beauty and pride of our nation.. My video equipment will only consist of a small camera mounted on a Unipod ( single leg) as opposed to a tripod ( 3 legs) and i assure you this will NOT be a hindrance or danger to any other visitors !!.. I will be leaving KL on Sunday or Monday latest and will be riding along the back roads through KKB, Frasers, Tanjung Malim, Tapah, Kampar, Ipoh, Kuala Kangsar, Taiping, Penang, Sungai Petani, Langkawi and will reassess from here... Should hopefully be in Ipoh by Tues/Wednesday (5 or 6th December 2016) Will pay the normal entrance fee, just needing permission for a simple film.. Thank you..
