This Tibetan Buddhist temple is possibly the largest in Malaysia. Besides its main temple complex, it is home to a 13-storey Enlightened Heart Medicine Buddha Bhaishaya Guru Pagoda which was completed in 2007, over a period of more than ten years at a cost of some RM6 million.

With the purpose for sentient beings to seek cure for illnesses and to pray for longevity, the pagoda is believed to be the largest in the world, measuring 72.5 metres in height.

On the ninth floor of the pagoda stands a 11.5m-tall Sakyamuni Buddha golden statue, an imposing figure that can be seen from the main Tambun-Ampang Road. Atop the pagoda is also a library of Tibetan Buddhist scriptures and books. Climbing up the pagoda takes about 20 – 30 minutes, as time is required to check out the larger statues placed at the lower levels of the pagoda.

Truly, this is one attraction that is not to be missed, for anyone who swings by Ipoh, even if it’s for just a short visit. And it doesn’t matter if one isn’t Tibetan Buddhist.
