Sam Poh Temple information
This scarlet-and-yellow temple complex, just below Brinchang, about 1km off the main road, is peopled with huge burnished statues and magnificent tilework. Inside the first hall are statues of the defenders of Buddhist law; continue to the inner temple building (remove your shoes), where hundreds of ceramic tiles feature intricately hand-painted Buddha images.
The temple, built in 1972, is dedicated to medieval admiral and eunuch Zheng Ho and is allegedly the fourth-largest Buddhist temple in Malaysia.
