Sam Poh Buddhist Temple Cameron Highlands, Pahang.

Location:  Brinchan
4l Miles, Brinchang, 39100 Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands, Pahang.

Sam Poh Buddhist Temple located in Brinchang. It built high on a hill overlooking Brinchang town. Due to its location, the temple has a good view of Brinchang town and the houses that dot the little hills surrounding Brinchang. Sam Poh Temple built in 1972, is is the 4th largest Buddhist temple in the country. Amongst others, it houses a large statue of Lord Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. The temple is quite pretty and has been well maintained by residents and monks. Surrounded by a bright yellow wall, the temple is serene and peaceful. Inside are lots of different statues, both Buddhist and Chinese, and incense burning in the background in memory of those passed on. Remove your shoes before entering the temple halls. But be careful, the marbled floor is so chilly to the feet without wearing a pair of socks.

Thai Buddhist Chetwan Temple Jalan Gassing Kuala lampur


In Kuala lampur, we rented a room in a small guest house located in peaceful vicinity of Jalan Gassing. The nearest LRT station Taman Jaya, was nearly at two kilometer walking distance from our place. That, two kilometer walk was very interesting one;  first used to come a small market, where we used to do daily dinner in Sri Paandi Gassing restaurant, that was a  south Indian hotel  a very humble and cooperative staff  belong to Tamil Nadu. They always gave us favor by giving extra food. Then there was a peaceful road that went straight to Taman Jaya Lake & Park. There was a Temple located at beginning of this road.  This was a Thai Buddhist Chetwan Temple. I visited it on last day of my stay in KL.
