Guan Yin Dan Ba Xian Tong Cave Temple

Guan Yin Dan Ba Xian Tong Cave Temple

This is a small cave temple that does not really feature on anyone’s Ipoh tourist itinerary. It is interesting that they have called this temple ‘Guan Yin Dan’ rather than ‘Guan Yin Tan’, which suggests that it is a Hokkien Chinese temple in origin. Like the Kwan Yin Tong Temple, this one too is dedicated to Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. So, if we break this down, Guan Yin Dan (means Goddess of Mercy Temple), Ba Xian (Eight Gods) and Tong (Cave).

Views from the Guan Yin Dan Ba Xian Tong Cave Temple

Upon arriving at Guan Yin Dan Ba Xian Tong Cave Temple there is not much to do or see. This is simply a local place of worship. However, the views from the cave are particularly good and it also overlooks its large neighbour, Kallumalai Arulmigu Sri Subramaniyar Temple. Without going into this large Indian temple complex, you will get a birds eye view of the prayer room and peacock enclosure. A climb up the stairs of Guan Yin Dan Ba Xian Tong Cave Temple provides visitors with a good vantage point for some nice photos.
