Golden Dragon Buddhist Temple (Chin Loong San) – Sg Choh, Rawang

We dropped off here on the way to Chiling Falls sometime back, so we grabbed a few shots before we headed off for breakfast and a quick stop at the Dam.

The first thing that strikes you is the rather majestic buddha in the sky.

There are rows of statues on the ground too, the different immortals and stuff I guess. Better to ask Suan as I’m no expert on Buddhism.

The temple itself is a beautiful place.

There were people praying so we didn’t really explore what was inside the temple.

I saw this rather pretty flower in the garden.

After the temple we stopped by this Dam and resulting lake, it was a pretty awesome site with the water rushing into the huge void.

It was a beautiful and relaxing place, I’d like to spend some time there one day.

Good place to do a model shoot, any volunteers? Hehe.

Anyway that was a pretty random selection of pictures, will follow up with the Chiling Falls post soon.

    Beautiful pictures as usual, ST 🙂

    The dam picture would be awesome if not for the fencing.

    If I’m not mistaken the void at the dam is known as the glory hole, seriously! But it looks more like half a glory hole so I can’t confirm it. Here: http://www.maddump.com/?p=25

    But nice pictures there! 🙂

    Yeah, try the Klang Gates Dam too and hike up Bukit Tabur.

    Azmeen: Thanks, yah really wished I could have gotten a higher aspect for that.

    kevin: Hmm will check that out.

    Debbie: All are converted from RAW with Adobe Camera Raw. I use a Nikon camera 🙂

    Matthew: Yah, that site seems to have a virus btw. Still planning to hike up Tabur – haven’t made it yet.

    Virus? As in a drive-by one or?

    I wasn’t aware of it!

    In this statement …

    :There are rows of statues on the ground too, the different immortals and stuff I guess. Better to ask Suan as I’m no expect on Buddhism.:

    You were meant to say EXPERT right? :p

    Nice photos…

    ST, great photos. I wish I were in KL. Trips seem MUCH cheaper originating from there. Sarawak is like the short end of the stick, everything more expensive for less value.

    Matthew: Not sure my AV flagged it as some generic exploit.

    Michael Yip: Yeah was tired heh.

    Huai Bin: Yeah loads of places to travel nearby KL and travelling around peninsular is cheap and convenient. I agree its pretty expensive over there. Seeing some of your food posts it’s not cheap to eat there too.
