Perak Tong cave temple murals

Perak Tong cave temple, near Ipoh in Perak, Malaysia, is one of the oldest temples, established in 1926. It is also known for its beautiful wall murals and Chinese calligraphy. Famous artists from overseas came to the temple to do the artwork. In 2009 there was a major rockfall in the cave, and some of the murals and statues were lost. These photos were taken in Aug 2009, when the temple was open again after the January rockfall.
