It is at Jingang Jing She, a Tibetan Buddhist temple at Ampang Baru, near Ipoh. It is probably Perak’s tallest Amithaba Buddha statue, and stands on top of the temple. Waihlee told me "It is a tibetan style temple Jingang ( mean Vajra) Jing She ( mean Vihara)."
It is not actually a cave temple. The main temple hall is built against the rock face. There is a kitchen and bathroom -
A staircase leads up to the different levels above.
There are many statues all over the place, presumably they have been donated and many have not yet been given a home. Many of the smaller statues are placed on the rock face, some have been cemented in place which looks ugly.
On one upper level there are several Bodhisattva Tara statues under construction.
Window with the hils behind. Apparently the centre word is "om"
At the top you come out at a level which is below the Amithaba.

Apparently it costs RM10 per person to spend a night at the temple.
A devotee told me the temple is 13 years old. I think there was an old wooden temple there, and the current temple construction started 13 years ago. The Amithaba Buddha statue was built more recently.
