Sam Poh Tong or Cavern of Three Precious in a Chinese Buddhist temple built within a raw limestone cave in the mountains and is one of the oldest, most famous cave temples in Ipoh. It is also the largest cave temple in Malaysia. The temple dates back to the 1950s and a stiff climb of 246 steps will lead you to an open cave with an panoramic view of Ipoh and its surroundings. The temple community of Buddhist nuns and monks who dedicate their lives to the teachings still occupy the Sam Poh Tong till this day. The temple also offers visitors the chance to release turtles into its turtle pond as a means of balancing one’s karma.
