Miaw Yuan Chan Lin Cave Temple Ipoh

1. Miaw Yuan Chan Lin Cave Temple

This limestone cave temple by the name of Miaw Yuan Chan Lin is a Thai Buddhist temple. It is not as well-known as, for example, Perak Cave Temple or the colourful Lin Seng Tong.

It’s probably because the name is difficult to pronounce, or to non-Mandarin speakers like me, difficult to remember.

The development of this temple is a work in progress and I can see the vision of the management in turning this limestone cave temple into another tourist attraction in Ipoh.

Going to Miaw Yuan Chan Lin is not difficult as it is located at the fringe of a housing development. Coming from Ipoh heading to Gunung Rapat, drive along Jalan Raja Dr. Nazrin Shah and turn left at the junction just before Petronas fuel station.

Wesak Day (usually in April) is celebrated on a grand scale here annually. So is Kathina robe offering, normally in November. Photography enthusiasts who want to capture shots with the magnificent backdrop found here are advised to come to this temple during the weekend.

I think Miaw Yuan Chan Lin will be a major attraction to both locals and visitors once it is fully developed.
