Mural Arts Trail

Ipoh Mural Arts Trail

The Mural Arts Trail in Ipoh’s old town is based around the vicinity of Panglima Lane. Ernest Zacharevic’s mural work in Georgetown on Penang Island (around 150km north east of Ipoh) inspired the project. In 2014 Ipoh City Council and the famous Ipoh based company, Old Town White Coffee, commissioned the same Lithuanian artist to paint seven murals.

Caves

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.
