Sam Poh Tong Temple    
  Sam Poh Tong, discovered in 1912, is a Chinese Buddhist Temple within a natural limestone hill.

Developed by the Buddhist community and now has become an international tourist spot attracting visitors from all over the world.

Among the main attractions there are a beautifully decorated pavillion in front of the temple and a landscaped garden with a fish pool, which was awarded " The Best Landscaped garden" in Malaysia 1993.
Other than that, statues of Buddha and other deities are placed inside for respective devotees to offer prayers.   A small pathway inside the cave leads to a tortoise pond where feeding is allowed if you purchase some "Kangkong" vegetables at the entrance.
