Well maintained and cleaned. Must try the steps to the top to see nice views but you need to be an experienced climber for safety.

The surrounds of the temple is well kept. Loved our walkabout as we get to see the deity statues all around and the ponds.

Didn't realize that there was a hike up, which offers excellent views of the surrounding areas. The cave is super cooling and many shrines in it. Worth going!

This was an excellent experience, a significant cultural experience for a Westerner, and for a donation you can hike out of the back of the temple and up to the top of the mountain the cave is built into!

Nice cave although like all the places well provided with proper steps and rails etc. There is then a walk which goes out of the cave to to the top of the hill. It keeps going so keep looking for ways up. The view is interesting but not so beautiful as Ipoh on one side and an industrial area on the other.,

A short Grab ride will bring you to the temple. Would recommend this one if you are short on time. Nice paintings on walls. If you want you can climb to the top of the mountain. Its steep. I didnt do it but my son assures me its is wort the doing it.
When you come into the temple you will see a table with tiles on it manned by a couple of ladies. They are collecting donations to improve the temple and the viewing point above the cave. I suggested that perhaps having a sign in English may help. They need to raise a lot of money so if you can help please contribute.

If you need limestone cave expedition with kids, this is most suitable place. With local people surround, you feel safe and motivated to go up on the hill and enjoy the view of Ipoh city. Do not miss this!

There are many cave temples in Ipoh, but this is for those who like to explore a little bit - the view is worth a climb up the many, many steps. BRING MOSQUITO REPELLENT.

Lots of art on the cave walls, friendly attendants, and many little nooks to explore, and just pause.

Entry is free, but RM10 buys you a roof tile with your name inscribed and helps upkeep the temple.

Tip: Get yourself an old-school ice cream from the ice cream man at the entrance of the temple.
DO NOT FEED THE MONKEYS.
