What travellers are saying
- Perak Cave Temple is located around 15 minutes ride from downtown Ipoh. The natural cave is the temple itself with statues and wall paintings of Buddha and Bodhisattvas. Therefore, the temple earns the name of "Dunhuang in the South". Following the passage of the cave, it will lead you to the apex of the hill where you can enjoy the views around. A peaceful and culture-rich religious site to visit. Recommend it.Written 25 February 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- What a nice place to visit in Ipoh stopover. The cave is a Chinese temple and very well kept, clean and maintained. It opens up to a beautiful garden with lots of activities like boating, cycling. The cave have small elevator for disabled guests. Worth a visit.Written 6 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We were told it is one of the oldest cave temples here so we had to come take a look. Note that they close quite early at 230pm.
Beautiful temple but the locals told us it has not been well-maintained. Much overgrown vegetation and dim at some point, but it still has its charm here.
Grab a bowl of chopped tomatoes to feed the tortoises at the other outlet of the cave temple. We spent /497'd 30-45 minutes here. Best to see other caves in the area to make your trip worthwhile.Written 7 November 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- A popular hindu temple for local & tourists. It's nice to visit during thaipusam, even crowded with people & cars. Religion presentation & programme are worth to itWritten 12 January 2020

- Of the 3 mosques I saw in central Ipoh this one was the prettiest, although I didn't take the opportunity to go inside any of them. Looks especially good at night when the lights are on.Written 21 March 2019
- There are two quan yin temple in Ipoh. One is located at the heart of the city while the other is at Gunung Rapat, which is a cave temple. The address , Jalan Sultan Idris shah is the one at city center which nothing special except its an old temple. The review photos share by me is the one at Gunung Rapat. It is located next to Sam Po Tong. Entrance is free.Written 27 November 2019
- The tin industry not only attracted Chinese workers and investors, also the Indians moved to Ipoh in huge numbers. This immigrated population group, mainly consisting of (originally) South Indians of Nattukkotai Chettiar descent as well as Punjabi’s, now predominantly lives in the area from Jalan Sultan Yussuf to Jalan Lahat… also known as “Little India.”

- This is a very nice place to visit. There are many historical temples here, but it can be quite far from the city centre to visit. Worth it when making a trip to the other attractions around this place.Written 13 March 2020

- This is an off the beaten path attraction for those of you who want a change from cave temples and heritage buildings. The highlight is the numerous number of praying figures and the giant reclining Buddha. There are many statues around but many look cheaply - made. We were in and out in ten minutes.Written 28 December 2016
