Another main attraction of this Goddess of Mercy cave temple is its Wishing Tree. This tree receives continuous visitors throughout the year looking for their wishes to be granted. It is believed that the spirit of a Tibetan deity lives in the tree and is able to grant these wishes. One has to buy the joss-paper tied with red ribbon to a Mandarin orange for RM8 (current price), write the name and wishes onto the joss-paper and throw it up in the tree. The tree is four-storey high or more than 12 metres tall and it is believed that the higher the joss-paper is hung, the better the chances of getting one’s wishes granted!

If you watch Hong Kong dramas, I am sure you have seen the wishing tree of Lam Tsuen Tin Hau Temple in Hong Kong. Well, this wishing tree is similar. I do wonder, though, how many people actually saw their dream realised by wishing upon the tree in Kwan Yin Tong in Ipoh.
