The Cave of Ultimate Bliss. How could you not want to visit a place with a name as beautiful as this?

Caves have an innately mysterious aura. Most are only found some distance away from civilisation, and their yawning mouths seem to call out to visitors… or warn them to stay away. You can tell from the name Kek Lok Tong (Cave of Ultimate Bliss) that this cave is one of the former.

 

Kek Lok Tong (sometimes spelt as Kek Look Tong)

The Cave of Ultimate Bliss is located in Ipoh, the capital of the north-western Malaysian state of Perak. At the turn of the 19th Century, a flourishing tin mining industry triggered Ipoh’s transformation from a sleepy village into a boomtown. In the decades that followed, a wealth of opportunities presented themselves, attracting waves of migrant workers from China and other countries.

There was some moss growing inside but it looked natural and the water was clean and clear. The fishes are very large and look healthy. Click on image to enlarge.

The earliest records of Kek Lok Tong as a religious site date back to the 1920s. This period coincides with the second tin rush that brought thousands of workers to Malaya, as the peninsula was then known.

Some of the most important Buddhist holy places in China are located within the country’s vast rural highlands. The Kledang Mountain range that runs from the north to the west of Ipoh must have evoked a sense of the familiar within the Chinese miners who toiled here. They brought with them the religions and beliefs of their forefathers, taking solace in piety amid the uncertainty of this promising but intimidating new world.

Kek Lok Tong is just one of many cave temples within the limestone outcrops that run around the outskirts of Ipoh. A river tributary runs about 1.6 km (0.99 mi) into these hills. As is nature’s tendency before man interferes, the region embodies an inherent balance. Hills of hard rock tower above the earth, silent and unrelenting while water flows alongside, gentle and fluid.

The grounds of Kek Lok Tong cover over 12 acres in their entirety. This includes several lakes of different sizes on either side of the cave complex. These artificial lakes are remnants of the mining activity that carried on here until the 1970s. The temple is located in one of the 5 caves in this part of the stony outcrop.

The mouth of the cave is massive, almost 15 metres high and slightly larger in width. A laughing Buddha statue welcomes you at the entrance. Beyond, the central altar is a testament to the open-minded nature of traditional Chinese thought – it combines both Buddhist figures and deities from the Taoist pantheon.

Among the Buddhist Bodhisattvas depicted are Manjushri, Maitreya, Samantabhadra, Wei Tuo, Ksitigarbha and Vairocana. These gold-coloured statues were cast in Taiwan and sit atop massive marble pedestals.

Not all the statues are so noticeable, though. If you look closely amongst the rocks and plants that line the cave’s interior, you will find miniature figurines together with walkways and pagodas built to scale for them.

A great deal of effort and expense has been invested in making Kek Lok Tong a pleasant escape from the bustle of daily life. The floor of the cave has been smoothened and levelled to the point that it is wheelchair-friendly. Even the lower portion of the walls are lined with marble tiles.

However, the upper walls and the roof have been left in their natural state. The roof is a sight of wonder. The Kinta limestone of Kek Lok Tong ranges from light grey to white in colour but embedded within it are fascinating patterns of tin ore. The beautiful stalactites that emerge from it are intriguing enough but the surface itself is an undulating canvas of textures, light and shadow. Mother Nature is indeed a most talented artist.

While the Kek Lok Tong cave temple is the main draw, the garden complex around it has come to be seen as a wonder in its own right. A flight of stairs leads down from the rear exit of the cave to the open grounds. It is a serene sight and immensely beautiful, too. All around are foliage-covered hills, creating a cocoon of peace and tranquillity.

It is perhaps strange that a location named for a cave features a sight so open and free, too.

Virtually every inch that is not a water body or a track is a tree or covered in grass instead. Yet, despite the huge expanse of the verdant grounds, the garden is very well-maintained. The lawns are manicured and even the ponds are free of debris and detritus. A reflexology path, apparently one of the longest in Ipoh, winds its way around the lakes.

Families and couples unwind here and you may also see some motivated individuals practising their meditation.

 

Visiting Kek Lok Tong

Kek Lok Tong is about 2 hours’ drive from Kuala Lumpur. It is a popular weekend getaway for people from the Malaysian capital as well as local residents.

Kek Lok Tong is one of the few cave temples in Ipoh (and perhaps the country) where considerable attention has been given to making it wheelchair accessible. There is an access ramp for those with mobility issues as well as specially designed restroom facilities.

 

When to Visit

The temple and gardens are open to the public daily, including weekends and public holidays. Opening hours are from 07:00 am to 5:30 pm. A typical visit to the temple takes less than an hour. You may find yourself enjoying the pleasant gardens for a much longer time.

Kek Lok Tong sees larger crowds on weekends and during the school holidays. It is still possible to enjoy the sights on these days but finding a place to sit may not be as easy. It is also a good idea to avoid visiting during the wet season – the floor of the cave can become quite slippery.

 

Admission

There is no entry fee but a donation box has been placed at the entrance. If you would like to help keep Kek Lok Tong as clean and well-maintained as it is, please consider making a contribution.

 

Getting There

The main entrance is accessible through the Gunung Rapat housing estate, 5 km south of Ipoh city.

Address: Kek Lok Tong, Gunung Rapat, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia.

 

The Quiet Solace of a Cave

Do you ever imagine what the world was like in ages past? In the time before the rapid urbanisation of the Industrial Revolution? Civilisation was largely confined to small settlements outside of the few great cities of the world. Vast tracts of unexplored land lay between them, ventured into only by the adventurous. Or the pious.

Even in that age of sparse populations, monks and holy men abandoned their simple towns and villages in search of even greater solitude. Adherents of every faith, all over the planet and across the ages often settled on one location: a cave. It offered immediate sanctuary from the elements and hostile parties and cost no time or effort to build.

The earliest holy places of virtually all the world’s ancient religions, both Eastern and Western, were inside caves.

Who knows how many holy caverns and grottoes remain unexplored in remote corners of the world. Some have undoubtedly been covered by rockfalls and landslides in the intervening ages, and now wait for you to rediscover them.

Those that we know of often exude an aura of power. It is as if the thoughts and the very personas of the holy people who meditated there have imprinted themselves in the walls. Meditating at these sites is akin to opening yourself up directly to that ancient wisdom.

So, when you visit a holy cave, pause to think of what it is telling you in its silence.

Update: 17th November 2010

I took a group of my students to visit Kek Look Tong Cave temple. Legend has it the cave temples were built by monks visiting from China, and they settled here and set up these temples.

The mountains here look very ancient, I guess it must have reminded them of home… I have always loved caves and mountains. Even as a small child, I wanted to run away to the forests and woods to meditate. When I came to Malaysia, I did not have that in many places. One of the places was Ipoh. I used to visit the cave temples and do my meditations and sadhana there, and also sometimes have a picnic.

We walked around the caves and also the park behind and I pointed out to them some ideas that would be very nice for Kechara World Peace Centre (KWPC). We are going to build a retreat centre in Malaysia that will be an alternative learning centre for healing, learning of arts and Buddhist philosophy. There will also be a Tara walk, a large Dzambala statue and a Lama Tsongkhapa statue to bless Malaysians and the kind Malaysian government.

In the park behind the caves, there are many large ponds and lakes where they release catfish, koi and terrapins. There is also a path around the park where a lot of people were jogging or walking with their families. There were some gazebos, and I gave my students a short Dharma talk there about how other beings suffer when we choose ourselves over others. We also did some short prayers there. It reminded me of the times I would go there to do my sadhana. The caves have not changed much actually. It is quite well-built because they don’t seem to need to do a lot of renovations or maintenance. The only problem is that it is wet inside and a little slippery.

I will be sending more of my students there to take a look. I like places like this where it is spiritual but also very fun and interesting. It is a good place for adults to go and get some peace, and also for kids to get out of the city.

The water park is called Lost World of Tambun and it was made to look very old, rustic, ancient and authentic. The whole water park was surrounded by mountains and there were lakes everywhere. It was really nice as there were even animals in the petting zoo! There was also a very nice aviary where the birds are allowed to roam around freely. The birds were so happy and looked well-fed and FREE!!!!

My students told me Lost World of Tambun is not as big as Sunway Lagoon which is here in KL, and it is also not as crowded. I would like to go and check out Sunway Lagoon soon too, because it is somewhere closer to home and more convenient. I had a lot of fun in Lost World… I already know who I would like to send there very soon. They can just rent a van, or take two or three cars and drive there on a day trip… Very fun, even if you are an adult (or think you are an adult!) hehe…

By the way, we got to the caves using GPS. When my personal assistant Loh Seng Piow first got the GPS, I didn’t think it was a good idea but it was very useful in Ipoh and worked well!

I do recommend a visit to Ipoh and don’t forget to visit the Buddhist caves which are 30 mins by car from the Lost World. Nice day out.

I love seeing animals free. My students regularly release hundreds of kilos of fish into a park in KL. We buy the fish from a wet market and release them. Then we go back and check also to see if the fish are okay, and also to feed them...

There are also some gazebos where people can relax in the gardens. When I came here years ago with my monks, we would sit on the grass and do our sadhana. It is very peaceful and serene here.

I like trees like this…few roots on the ground, and very large spread of leaves. It provides good shade. It would be nice to have trees like these in KWPC. Then we can hold a lot of outdoor activities like classes in qi gong, tai chi, Dharma classes, childrens classes.

Something like this would be nice for the Tara Walk in KWPC. But the path needs to be smooth in KWPC so the elderly and infirm can also walk to Tara and receive blessings.

Wherever I go, if I can I like to feed animals like dogs and fish. We recite Medicine Buddha’s mantra and blow it onto the food to bless the animals. By learning to feed fish and not eat them, we develop compassion because they cannot thank us for stopping their suffering. If you are my student, go vegetarian today. Stop eating flesh from dead animals.

I like to send Kecharians to places to relax and have fun. They work very hard, and need a break sometimes. I now have a department that works very hard to take care of my students and the Kechara staff, and also the newcomers to Kechara. They are called Kechara Care.

More mountains. I loved this view, I could just imagine myself in a small cave at the top meditating and doing practice. I am on a paddle boat while we take this beautiful picture….On the right, behind trees, there’s another cave. I dream this cave is my home and outside is green and had lakes filled with fishes for me to feed. I like this so much… All in the LOST WORLD in Ipoh.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful place in Ipoh. I have not visited Kek Look Tong and never knew it has a beautiful garden and cave. Would love to visit one of this day when I’m in Ipoh.

  2. Stella Cheang on Feb 14, 2018 at 11:20 am

    Kek Look Tong is a well kept place for pilgrimages and visitors through out the year. The natural setting of the cave, trees and ponds are truly inviting to anyone who prefer it or who are looking for a nice place for self reflection. The Lost World, on the other hand, is an actions driven theme park packed filled with facilities and activities for visitors to spend all their energy on. It is very kind of Rinpoche to bring a group of students to visit these two interesting sites in Ipoh. Rejoice.

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post of Kek Lok Tong Cave and Lost World in Ipoh.I haven’t visited there yet and reading this post and by looking at those beautiful images i can see its an interesting place to visit.The big statues of Kuan Yin, Manjushri and Maitreya Buddha looks beautiful and the lakes as well as the surrounding area too.
    Thanks again .

    The only time I visited Ipoh was during last year when I joined the YAK on a Orang Asli village visit, I have never been to Ipoh prior to that. The first impression Ipoh gave me was the environment is very clean and I could rarely see rubbish being thrown everywhere unlike KL, this shows that Ipoh folks are very discipline and they really care enough to abide the laws, it’s definitely something we can’t see in KL. I would love to visit Ipoh once again and visit this beautiful cave.

  5. Sean Wang on Feb 28, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    I have never been to Kek Lok Tong but the images here are so beautiful. I really wish I could have the opportunity to visit this lovely cave temple. I went to the Lost World of Tambun but I left one of the rides as I was terrified by the loud sounds Hehe. I wish I could go again.

    Having read Rinpoche’s posting of Kek Lok Tong, I couldn’t resist not going to check it out. So together with my family and equipped with a GPS we reached our destination without any problem. Kek Lok Tong is a very nice and well maintained cave. Even though there were many busloads of tourists as it was a public holiday, the place still has a serene, peaceful feeling. The surrounding gardens were very well kept and the fishes in the pond were big and very well fed. This cave is not so commercialized like the Sam Poh Tong.There were no stalls selling joss sticks or candles for people to make offerings so that is why the cave stayed clean and free from smoke.

    To quote Rinpoche, this place is a great place to recharge our spiritual batteries. May KWPC manifest soon so that we can recharge our batteries there too!

    Rinpoche visited with some of his students in Kek Lok Tong caves as well as Lost World Water Theme Park in Ipoh. Rinpoche loves to visit caves. Even when he was in Malaysia he has visited the cave on the Thailand Border in Padang Besar. Near this cave there is also a Monastery where Rinpoche stays for short time and goes to the cave daily to to do his meditation and prayers. Whereas in Kek Lok Tong cave in Ipoh you can only spend the day visiting the cave. There are big statues of Kuan Yin, Manjushri and Maitreya Buddha in the Chinese form brought over from China. During my eary days in Buddhism I had a Chinese Manjusri Statue with the Deity riding on a snow lion. I had it on my altar for many years thinking it is Kuan Yin until later someone told me it is Manjushri.

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing.

  9. Angel SH Ooi on Nov 24, 2010 at 3:03 am

    Dearest Rinpoche,

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing and showing us Kek Lok Cave and Lost World Water Theme Park in Ipoh. I like the surroundings with mountains, lakes, trees and lots of greens and it gives the feeling of serenity.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for taking Your time out to visit both of these places, and provided with so much information, it’ll help some of us a lot when we want to visit the place later.

    On behalf of Beatrix and Edward, I would like to thank Rinpoche for giving them gifts from Lost World. They like it so much…thanks

    Love, angel

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I have often visited passed the limesonte hills and temple entrances on the way to Ipoh in the past, but never stopped. Thank you Rinpoche for this posting, will make a point the next time i go Ipoh to visit this temple. It looks so serene.

  12. David Lai on Nov 14, 2010 at 9:35 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I have never been to this cave temple! It is so beautiful and find the Buddha images within very unusual. I will try to remember it and visit it when I am in ipoh. It is really incredibly beautiful and surreal.

    Thank you for the sharing I had a good read of the article and a clear picture of the blind corner of each decade. I believe people grow through the lessons that they experience in their life journey. Throughout life, we go through many challenges and painful experience some changing us for the better, others for the worse.

    I never heard about 9 is the changing point of our live, what i know in every aspect of our bad time, we struggle, every point we learn, think positively, pray and to be wise. Only painful experience gives a good lesson because God has a plan for everything that happens in our lives and we need to go through it due to our past karma.

    Interesting history behind the eighth Jebtsundamba . As a young boy, he was recognized as the new incarnation of the Bogd Gegen in Potala in the presence of the 13th Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama. When northern Mongolia declared independence in 1911, the eighth Jebtsundamba was elevated to theocratic ruler, called Bogd Khan. As the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutuktu, he was the third most important person in the Tibetan Buddhist hierarchy after the Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama. He was the spiritual leader of Outer Mongolia’s Tibetan Buddhism also known as the “Bogdo Lama. In this beautiful thangka he is depicted with Dorje Shugden the powerful dharma protector who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. We are blessed merely by looking at this beautiful thangka.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Ganapati is known as Ganesha, and also known by numerous other names as well by different tradition. Ganapati is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu tradition. The primary function of Ganapati in Tantric Buddhism is that of a wealth deity and is widely revered as the remover of obstacles. Ganapati has been represented with the head of an elephant. There many myths and stories as how he got his elephant head and in many forms as well. Here depicted together with the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden forms a powerful pair to help overcome obstacles and creating suitable conditions for our spiritual practice to flourish. Beautiful thangka.

    Shakyamuni Buddha is the founder of the Buddhist religion. Born as the crown prince of the great Shakya Kingdom 2,500 years ago.He forgo everything living luxury in the palace to find the causes of suffering and the means to overcome it. After a long spiritual search he went into deep meditation, self-deprivation, and finally he become an enlightened one. Soon his teachings became the basis for the Buddhist faith. In this beautiful thangka as depicted with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri, in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings.

    The Yant tattoos have developed over the centuries under the influence of several different religious.They have their reasons to do it as it represents vows and commitments, blessings, kindness and love. It is a spiritual method to help someone become a better person.
    From this article we can see most people are seeking for mundane help which is quite common but what most important is how one would be able to transform their mind for better and ultimately achieve liberation from suffering.Thank you very much for this interesting article and video for exploring another type of unique spiritual tradition.

    Beautiful thangka of Mahasiddha Naropa and Niguma, the Lady of Illusion paints a thousand words. In this painting the great Tantric mahasiddha Naropa sits gazing up,together with Niguma a dakini and was one of the influential yoginis and Vajrayana teachers. Niguma is one of the two female founders of the Shangpa Kagyu school of Vajrayana Buddhism. A beautiful thangka depicted with the powerful dharma protector Dorje Shugden will be wonderful to have.

    Janguli is a Buddhist goddess who protects from snakes and poisons, worshiped in the ancient past. By nature Janguli is actually Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion who will protects us against snakes but actually dissolving our anger. Our anger is the root cause for destruction of merits and causes us to stay in samsara longer. A beautiful thangka depicted with Dorje Shugden the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri will definitely wonderful to have in our home protecting us and helping us to clear obstacles in our spiritual path.

    The practice of Vajrayogini is especially popular in the Highest Yoga Tantra of the Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug schools. Her Tantra promises rebirth in her pure land known as Kechara Paradise. When Vajrayogini is portrayed in this appearance with the left hand raised and the two feet firmly planted she is commonly referred to as the Naro Khachodma. Red in colour with one face, three eyes and two hands the left holds aloft a white skullcup. As depicted with Dorje Shugden forms a beautiful and powerful thangka.

    We are so blessed hearing a sacred, holy recording of the two holy tutors of the Dalai Lama performing a Dorje Shugden kangsol (puja). Great masters HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche chanting the powerful puja to Dorje Shugden. Both of them were the tutors of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. This is definitely has proven that HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche had a close connection with Dorje Shugden. HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche has even composed a combined prayer offering to propitiate the blessings of this enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, which no one can denied. Both Kyabje Ling Rinpoche , Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and many Highly attained lamas of Tibet did propitiate Dorje Shugden lamas of Tibet. That’s the truth which cannot be hidden. But HH Dalai Lama insists that Ling Rinpoche, his own tutor, never relied on Dorje Shugden at all. Interesting read, may more people know the truth and understand better of the Dorje Shugden controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Khong Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing .

    Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka is a monument remembering the 35,000 people who lost their lives just in Sri Lanka during the 2004 tsunami. In loving memory of the 40,000 people who died in the tsunami and the thousands largest single rail disaster in world history. The powerful Sri Lanka tsunami-rail disaster occurred when a crowded passenger train was destroyed on a coastal railway in Sri Lanka by a tsunami. Built by Japanese Buddhist community to commemorate this tragedy, Sri Lanka has erected a Buddha Statue dedicated to everyone who lost their lives, as well as the people who survived. A beautiful place of sad memory . Having this Buddha statue built there will definitely plant the seeds of enlightenment for who visited this place and seeing is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful sharing.

    Thank you for the sharing the Buddhist Tsunami Memorial in Sri Lanka. Very touching article, heart breaking to read and to see pictures of the Tsunami tragedy. It was Sri Lanka’s worst and biggest natural disaster in recorded history. Many people were killed and thousands lost their home and family.

    As we know horrify incident always remarks many unpleasant feelings and memories.
    Despite the widespread wreckage and the unfathomable lives claimed, there remains a sense of optimism in the country.

    Appreciation the people involved to build a Buddha statue to purify the mind, builds up the serenity within ones and motivates to overcome the negative emotions of fear, hence uplifting the mind and focusing the attention on the reality of the materialistic world. May Buddha bless and calm all those that passed away from the tsunami.

    Dorje Shugden is a protector that is karmically very close to us which enables him to help us with such effectiveness and speed. There are many similar testimonies which prove to us that this protector is very beneficial for us.
    Due to the power of Dorje Shugden , miracles happened and she is well after many offerings such as incense, light and pujas following Rinpoche’s advice.Thank you for this amazing miracle story of Dorje Shugden.

    Venerable Geshe Sopa-lah a learned-monk spoke from his heart feelings and thoughts about what happening around the Dorje Shugden controversy and Dalai Lama as well. Those years back in India Geshe-lah did helped in the many buildings in Gaden Shartse Monastery where our Lama helped in the funds. He paints the truth of his experience sharing what he knew and gave a few points of advice. A friend of our lama for over 20 years, Venerable Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah visited Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia in 2016. Geshe Sopa-lah has been actively involved in the campaign against the Dorje Shugden ban since 1996. He is in fact blacklisted, ostracised and persecuted, family tides cut as he bravely spoke about ban and even attended the protests. Sadly all of his family have since cut communications with him. Geshe Lobsang Sopa-lah now lives in Vermont, USA ,serving HH Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Ooh dear could not imagine a well known man …James Jameson heir to the whiskey empire did such a cruel act. Well he might have his reason to do but I am sure the horrific incident will haunt him foe life. He was the grandson of the man whose signature appears on the whiskey bottles. Heartfelt reading what he did, bought an 11-year-old girl for the price of six handkerchiefs and gave her to a local chief where cannibalism existed at that time in Africa. He witnessed the most horribly sickening sight of the girl being dismembered piece by pieces , cooked and eaten without a particle remained, while he sketched the whole process. This is the most horrific, shocking story I came across.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sad sharing.

    Everyone of us have the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. In this modern time I would not imagine such incident of religious liberty exist. In a school of Louisiana, USA, a teacher spoke against a Asian student CC of his religious beliefs in a number of ways. CC was berated, harassed by teachers, administrators and even to that extend of receiving calls to his house. CC ‘s parents could not tolerate anymore and decided to file a lawsuit and won the case. Religious freedom, should be allow to all. Freedom of religion requires not only freeing religion from undue government regulation and interference from any one.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
