Perak Tong is perhaps the most impressive of the cave temples around Ipoh. It contains a huge golden Buddha statue and a number of other statues, one of which is dedicated to Qianshou ("Thousand hands") Guanyin. The walls of the cave are richly decorated with wall frescoes and the cave itself has an interesting structure. Perak Tong was built in 1926 by a Buddhist priest from China.
