- Excellent!!! Such an eye opener. Guide was super knowledgeable. It was very informative and had a lot of antique items from 1930s and earlier.Written 6 December 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I had a wonderful trip at here. The room is nice. The receptionist (Haikal) is so friendly. He explains every step and instructions clearly. It really help those who come here first time (like me) get to the destination (room, breakfast place, theme park) easily. Unfortunately it was a rainy day, so we cannot spent much time in the Hot spring theme park. Just one suggestion, I wish the breakfast have more variety of choice. Overall is good.Written 22 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- 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.Written 10 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- A place of interest that is a must to visit when you visit Ipoh. This is another Chinese temple that is built inside the cave. The only difference is that there have a lake and garden behind the temple. This temple is good for elderly and family with children. It is free of charge and there is ample of free car park (which is recommended). The drive to there is about 5.7km from the cityWritten 17 October 2023

- Interesting, pity most of the wall art is either gone, destroyed and not maintained, this can be a nice tourist areaInteresting place, sorry it is run down and not well maintained. This can be a good tourist hangout if it is maintained and developedWritten 25 March 2023
- While the 2nd Concubine lane is worth a visit for first timers, it has little to attract a repeat visit. It’s short and narrow. One hardly notices the history of the street while browsing to the vendors there. However, there is a good coconut refreshment shop selling coconut water, shake and ice cream that is worth visiting to rest one’s tired feet. Plenty of eateries within a stone’s throw from the 2nd Concubine lane.Written 1 June 2023
- Qing Xin Ling Leisure & Cultural Village has picturesque lake side and cliff views, old styled Malay, Chinese and Indian houses as well as double-bicycles with back seats (each vehicle can carry 4 adults plus a child) to save visitors from having to walk around the site. See 18 photos attached.Written 15 March 2023
- 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 2022
- Amazing Viewing from Pagoda at Enlighten Heart Tibetan Buddhist Temple with a Golden Statue of Lord Buddha.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.Written 1 June 2017
- I only have one comment to make which is about the animals there.....especially the ponies...
They look rather thin and when I was there today the 3 ponies looked hungry and one pony was nibbling on the sand. There wasnt any food or water for them. Hope the Ipoh Town Council could look into this matter immediatelyWritten 10 September 2023
- Nice place to visit.There was a lake and you have to use the boat to cross it from jetty to the island. At island you can see monkeys,birds and others and there was mini zoo as well. Your kids will love to see the animalsWritten 7 November 2022

- 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
