Create an itinerary including Sam Poh Tong Cave Temple
A spiritual and a natural attraction, Sam Poh Tong Cave Temple remains one of the oldest structures of its kind in Malaysia. Climb the 246 steps to witness this structure, built within a limestone cave. Take a moment to take in the peaceful views, then explore the surrounding gardens, filled with flowers, vegetables, and lotus ponds. The cave temple contains significant artworks, including a sculpture of a reclining Buddha, and offers tourists a chance to release turtles into its pond--an action believed to helps balance one's karma.

  • The temples are very nice, there is a very pretty building outside the cave entrance with a pond and nice gardens. There is not much inside the cave temples themselves. It is a 15/20 min bus ride...

  • Love the peaceful scenery around here. There is a turtle garden inside. The entrance is just amazing. You have to go through the cave entrance then you will see the turtle garden there. Any visitor who wish to come here, please don’t throw any rubbish around and keep clean. Do donate for their maintenance purpose. Should keep these place intact. Do visit and donate guys!
  • This place still the same..like never change. The tortoise feeding still as good. My kids had a great time feeding the tortoises.... Worth visiting if like feeding animals.. however other than feeding the tortoise there is practically nothing much to be done..
