There are many places of attraction located in the Genting Highlands. Although, this entire place is located quite high above in the clouds, it still has a lot of places of interest built specially for tourists and guests.
This is a very famous temple that is entirely located in the region of a rocky slope that is further located in the foothills of the Genting Highlands peak. This is a highly religious site and the entire temple makes use of a very frilly type of architecture. It makes use of the middle century Mongolian famous curved arching designs. A lot of meticulous sculptures have also been incorporated in the entire hotel. The paintwork is excessively colorful with a lot of bright colors and shades as well.
The landscapes are also quite bright and dazzling features. However, sometimes, this temple looks a bit gaudy with the overenthusiastic designs. Once you get in front of this temple, you will be immediately greeted by a long line of processions of animal statues. These animals include life size replicas of animals like camels, elephants, horses etc. They greet the visitors as soon as they come in front of the temple entrance. In spite off, excessively used design, this temple also serves to signify the famous Chinese sculptural designs.
Due to the wondrous paintwork and the etched designs, Chinese traditions and beliefs are displayed in a very handsome way. While visiting this temple, the visitors also get to look at the highly unbelievable landscape views. All of these combined, this temple is a great sightseeing area for tourists as well as visitors.
This temple was actually built by the famous founder of Genting Highlands. This temple was built after the first casino and resort construction was completed in 1975. Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong was born in China and he perceived a very lush as well as a rocky outcrop located in this region. He wanted to build a temple here that would greatly remind of the village landscape that was located in his native place.
This temple was built as a symbol of veneration for the famous Buddhist Figure Chin Swee. According to his wishes, this temple was exactly built from solid bedrock. Due to this, manual labor and highly meticulous construction for a matter of 18 years took place in this temple. The process of building this temple was so long because modern machinery was not put to use in the building of this temple. This was done mainly to avoid any sort of mishaps in the very slippery slope of the highlands.
The temple constructed here was quite small, but it was finally opened for public view in 1994. The entire complex was built in a couple of years and then it looked really brilliant. Since, the tourists who come here are not all Buddhists; this temple now plays homage to a lot of various religions. These are Buddhism, Taoism, other like Confucianism, Shamanism and also many others. The entire compound completely features a lot of artwork, paintings, statues, monuments, sculptures etc. the walls in the back are completely made up of solid rock because the temple actually descends from the mountains.
