Kek Lok Tong in Chinese pronunciation means Cavern of Ultimate Bliss. It’s located not far away from Sam Poh Tong since they are on the same range of limestone hills. I visited this cavern in my 3-in-1 Ipoh Trip recently, also known as Balik Kampung … Geng!

Kek Lok Tong Cave

December 2009

Cavern of Ultimate Bliss

Ipoh is pretty much surrounded with limestone hill and caves. Many temples can be found locating in the cave and this Kek Lok Tong is one of the many famous caves. It’s hidden far from town into residential area. Only a handful signboards are able to bring us to the destination. Luckily we have a good navigator with us during the entire trip.

After some confusing left and right turn throughout the housing area, we finally reached at the cave temple which was quite quiet. There were only a few people around. Are we too early?
