Sam Poh Tong
(Cavern of Triple Gems) - Actually a cluster of Chinese temples in Gunung Rapat near the Medan Gopeng Bus Terminal. The first temple, Ling Sen Tong is shrouded in the smokey haze of hundred of jossticks. Its neighbour, Nam Thean Tong, has hundreds of stairs that climb right through the mountain to high up on the other side, providing great views. Sam Poh Tong itself is the third of the row, just after the small coffee shop, where you should relax after climbing all the stairs of Nam Thean Tong. By this temple's entrance is a charming landscped bonzai garden and fish pond; inside, a tunnel leads right through the rocks to the sanctuary of the temple and its tortoise pond. On the road leading to the temples are stalls selling pomeloes, a local speciality. Local bus 94 continues to right next to these temples after passing the Medan Gopeng Bus Terminal. RM10 in a taxi from the city should be enough.
