In a small town from 20km north-east of Ipoh, there’s a home to the country’s only Tibetan temple named Persatuan Enlightened Heart Buddhist. Because of non-promote for tourism, it’s relatively unknown except Ipoh peoples.
Located by using my GPS, I hardly know about this place. The signboard is small and the road leading to the temple is narrow. Never thought about finding this place without proper direction.
Without needing to travel to Tibet, one can have a visit to Malaysia of Tibetan temple. The temple was built in 1975. The first thing I saw was a giant Buddha statue on the hill at the back. That’s correct my assumption the road leading is correct.
The statue is 24m tall and is said to be the tallest Buddha statue in Perak. I wasn’t sure if photo-taking is allowed inside the temple, so I didn’t take any photos and just stay in front of the temple and leave without going in. No one is around at that time.
There is no entrance fee.
Before getting near to entrance … have a feel being in China
To reach this place, here is the direction from online sources.
