Photographer's Note

The Tibetan Buddhist Temple (or known locally and by the devotees as Jingang Jing She Temple)is located in the town of Tambun, near by Ipoh city, in the famed orchards of pomeloes.

A 24m tall Amitabha Budddha statue stands on top of the temple next to near-vertical limestone hillsides.

It was built by a local, who owned the orchards around the area, who was a follower of the late Nepalese meditation master Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, hence the Tibetan inspiration for this temple.

NOTE: Tambun town is most famous for its sweet, fragrant pomeloes fruit....the best in the Malaysia.
