A trip to Gua Musang brought me to visit a temple in this cave. Its Kuan Yin statue was the main attraction that was published in the newspapers a long while ago.

Its entrance welcome you with a nice fish pond with an old uncle statue fishing. You can either sit around the pond to a little rest or move on to the high flight of stairs next to the pond.

Looking forward to visit the temple, my determination and small little breaks got me through the long flight of stairs.

It’s amazing how this Kuan Yin is carved directly from stalagmites. As I was told, it was once a stalagmites that looks like Kuan Yin. It’s then someone did some touch up to today’s beautiful form. Now I see how it became famous.

This is the original stalagmites form in another area of this cave. Interesting~~~!
