  • Spent about 1 hour visiting this temple compound! Was about noon, and the temperature was about 19 degrees. Nice and cool, when the fog rolls in. The temple was grand and very very clean! Great...  more »
  • It was a refreshing feel to visit the temple as it was midway to Genting hights, it had few amazing sculptures and work of art that was certainly worth clicking a few pictures.  more »
  • I like the stairs and the walk to the center of the temple. The statues were filled with stories and details, impressive work indeed. The best part would be on the central area where the visitors could see the view overlooking the greens below. I saw eagle flying on top and below the building, and there were sounds of monkeys in the woods, it was exciting to feel so close with nature. This kind of building exist within the natural setting, with the cool highland air and the warmth of morning sun, which gives the overall balance and harmonious feels to it.
  • Easily the best Temple I have been too.. Beautiful location and scenic views. The temple is beautiful, has Chinese architecture and the views are amazing. A bit of a walk to cover the whole premises but well worth it. The cable cars drop you to the nearest point.. can easily spend a couple of hours here.. Highly recommended.
