Perak Cave is another visit of the day. This cave is more commercialize cave where wat u see is many people selling things there. You can see they have stalls to ask people to write name for prosperity as well as others . Other than that, you can go see your palm on future as well buy blessing stuff from there too. But this cave.. is the most sightseeing u can see very nice and beautiful. The trip ended here and it is time back to Penang.

Perak Tong temple nestles within the huge limestone caves of “Gunung Tasek” (Tasek Hill), 6 km to the north of lpoh. The temple in the cave built in 1926 by a Buddhist priest from China and it houses over 40 Buddha. Beyond the main altar, a passage leads into the cave's interior.
No doubt that the first thing to do in a limestone cave is to admire the beautiful stalagmites and stalactites formed in various shapes naturally. Secondly, you should take a look at walls inside the cave, as there are drawings and writings on it. These drawings are about the stories of Buddha.
As this is a cave temple, for sure that you may have a pray if you are a Buddhist. There is Chinese fortune teller too. It's kind of fun to get to know about your passed life, no matter you do believe or not.
