Sam Poh Temple

Cameron Highlands

Sam Poh Temple in Brinchang is the largest religious structure in Cameron Highlands, nestled on a small hill top at the back of town. The access road can be found at the turn off next to Iris House Resort; follow the signboards along the narrow road up in less than five minutes by car. While the opulent temple is Buddhist in nature, a variety of brass deities from similar religions can also be found huddled inside.

While also a tourist attraction, most visitors are local Chinese or from Singapore, coming to admire the oriental architecture while offering prayers at the altar. The temple is free to enter, as long as you keep a quiet profile and remove your shoes.
