Location:- Ringlet, Cameron Highland, Pahang /冷力, 金馬崙高原, 彭亨.

As we we heading towards Tanah Rata from Tapah, we came across this chinese temple located by the side of the hill along the main route. We decided to stop by to pay a visit and it’s is not disappointing.

Visiting a Chinese temple on a higher ground usually means a good view and if there is much more space for expansion, the more better. I would consider this place as having both.

Upon arrival, we were greated with beautiful and colorful wall painting of the 8 immortals, Ba Xian / 八仙 on the side wall of this temple. It has a beautiful Pai Lou / 牌樓 leading to the entrance of the temple. There is also a stage for its celebration and festival purposes.

On the inside, all wall are painted with chinese mythology characters. It’s copper made dragon embracing the pillars over-looking a bridge leading to the main altar is rarely seen. Just Unique. If a devotee has any enquiries, they could seek the bamboo stick oracle. And the answers derived from the oracle can be found on small pink papers in the cabinet by the side.
