It located outskirts of Ipoh City in Tambun, just off Ampang Road, resides a sprawling Tibetan Buddhist temple complex. The temple was established around 1976 by Ge Li Rinpoche as a place to practice Nyingma Tibetan Buddhism. The complex itself covers around 12 acres.
This temple, with its imposing 13 storey pagoda and large standing Buddha statue, should be one of the top tourist attractions in Perak but it appears to be less visited than it deserves, perhaps due to its out-of-the-way location.
The pagoda, known as the Enlightened Heart Medicine Buddha Bhaishaya Guru Pagoda, measures 72 metres in height making it one of the tallest in the world, though far behind the Tianning pagoda in China which, at 154 m, is over double the height.
