    A highlight in Ipoh. It's well worth climbing the steps to the top. And the traditional Chinese fortune teller there was amazing. Go during the week when it's not so crowded.

    Interesting place, sorry it is run down and not well maintained. This can be a good tourist hangout if it is maintained and developed

    Building is beautiful. The station is small, clean and has basic facilities. Will be better if the Majestic Walk is repaired. There are lockers available.

    The murals (street art) of Ipoh are well famous :)
    Note, however, that the street art / murals are scattered in various locations in Old Town (i.e. the area on the side of the railway station of Kinta river) Ipoh

    Enlighten Heart Tibetan Buddhist Temple is an old charm and is located in Tambun. Not very much of people in Ipoh knows about it. It is at a hidden location covered by wild plants on the approaching roads and surroundings. There are very few Tibetan Buddhist temples in Southeast Asia, this temple is a rare find and is one of the largest Tibetan-tradition Buddhist temples in the country.
    It is located at the foot of Ipoh’s impressive stretch of limestone.The road sign is just before the turn to the road that leads to the temple.Travel about 1.2 km along the road directed from there. The road is narrow and covered with bushes on the sides where only one vehicle can travel at a time and therefore so be watchful.
    Temple is very quiet, five of us were the only visitors only at that time other than the volunteers who maintain it. My Chinese origin Malaysian friends told me that this temple is vibrant on festive season like Wesak days but rather quiet with few visitors on other days with few people. Nevertheless the architecture and the design are great. It is serine, spiritual and clears our souls when visited. There are some really impressive statues.
    By comparison with other more famous temples, it is quite new, and it is possible to feel the strong personal commitment volunteer There is one room with huge jars around.
    Volunteers helped us with directions. It was very beautiful and peaceful.
    The stairs led all the way to the top of this 13 storey Pagoda; where a golden statue of Lord Buddha with open hand is situated; overlooking at Ipoh town.The Pagoda houses an enormous Sakyamuni Buddha statue but it is dusty and looks like it hasn't been maintained in years. The climb to the top of the pagoda will reward you with great views. Every floor of this pagoda is decorated with statues, deities and paintings depicting the rich mythology of Buddhism and a breathtaking view of Kinta Valley can be seen from the top.
    We came to the main altar by 9 am to observe the ritual. Monks chanted sutras and disciples blowing horns and other traditional Tibetan instruments included in the processions. The masked dancers made the Charm dance in attractive costumes in elegant fashion.
    We got a different kind of an experience by visiting Enlighten Heart Tibetan Buddhist Temple in Ipoh but it is great.

    This old clock tower is worth a look on a city sightseeing tour. It says alittle about the history of this clock tower and is good for a quick photo.

    Built in 1912, St Michaels was a La Sallian missionary school. The facade is an impressive example of neo-gothic architecture. It's not a tourist attraction per se but a functioning school and you can't simply walk in.

    But the facade can be enjoyed from the outside.

    I went by here as I was going to the train station to check tickets. It's a nice war memorial but really not much to see really.

    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.

    I feel a bit nervous during the first time adventuring in the maze. The atmosphere there probably will terrify us but the arts inside are actually great and attractive. I'll be the first customer who decide to play it again when the theme of the maze has changed in the future.

    This is another heritage building to walk past as you're exploring the centre of Ipoh. Located only a short walk from teh Padang in the direction of Concubine Lane, a quick stop here can be included quite easily.
