Chin Swee Caves Temple: Genting Highlands Attractions

Malaysia, Places to Visit, Travel Reviews

Chin Swee Caves Temple is situated in Genting High Lands, Pahang, Malaysia. It is a Taoist temple, built  in honour of Reverend Master Chin Swee, a Buddhist monk, who was renowned for his ability to summon rain and drive away evil spirits. The main yard or the square houses several prayer halls for devotees to pray and meditate during their visit. People from different religions visit this temple. Once you see this place you just cannot stop admiring the serenity and magnificence of this temple. Tucked on the rocky slope of Genting Highlands’ peak, it gives you those marvelous views of the Pahang hills around it.

How To Reach To The Temple:

The location of the temple is very easily accessible, about less than an hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. You can reach here either by road and by the Awana SkyWay. For a convenient and pleasant trip up to the temple, park your car at the Awana SkyWay Car Park. From there, hop on to the Awana SkyWay gondola for a scenic ride to the temple. Disembark at the Chin Swee station at no extra cost and take the escalators to the temple grounds.

Remember to keep your cable car ticket as you can use the same ticket to continue your journey either to the peak or to the Awana Station if you had stopped at the temple on your way down.

The Awana SkyWay operates seven days a week from 7:00am to midnight. For the standard gondola, tickets are priced at RM8 per person  for Genting Rewards Card members. An express boarding pass can be purchased for RM40.

For the glass-floor gondola, tickets are priced at RM50 per person for Genting Rewards Card members.

If you prefer to drive, you can park your car in the temple compound where there are 112 bays.

What To See At The Temple:

The elegant temple is recognizable from a far from its 9 story pagoda. The sharp red, yellow and orange colours painted on the pagoda make it more prominent in the lush green highlands. The temple also offers visitors a breathtaking view and is a good place to meditate and appreciate the wonders of nature. As mentioned above, the panoramic views from the temple terrace are beyond words to explain.

As you enter the temple you see the nine-storey pagoda, decorated with figurines of Buddha. Inside are 10,000 “blessing lamps”, installed for devotees to dedicate to those whom they would like to be blessed.

Further as you reach to the Temple’s sky terrace you are greeted by the 15 meter tall statue of Buddha.  The ginormous statue of Buddha is perched aside the 10 chambers of hell.  These chambers of hell depict the afterlife of sinners. The art work is amazing and quite scary to see the depictions.
