It's a good tourist attraction. On the foot hill there's a well maintained Hindu temple in South Indian culture. Soothing. Serene. Steps should be climbed slowly. When you climb the steps uphill, you reach a few caves which have one good temple and a few other idols of Hindu Gods. The place is well kept. Clean. Small souvenirs can be purchased from the street vendors on the base . Parking facility is good. People in general are friendly.
Very amazing temple to visit. If you are visiting Malaysia, you should definitely visit this temple. You will sometimes feel very blessed. It's easy to reach here. There is a train that comes straight here. So there are no complicity in visiting here.
