Descripción:Tambun Tibetian Temple, also known as Jingang Jing She by the locals; is surrounded by magnificent perimeters of luscious valleys, orchards and limestone hills. The path leading to the temple may require a wee bit of maneuvering of your vehicle; though the journey was pittance in comparison to the outcome.
This temple was built back in 1975; and my parents have always commented that we have been here when we were kids; buying off fresh produce such as papayas and pomeloes from the farmers around the area back in the 80’s. However, I have lost all stakes to this shady part of my memory, and the (re)discovery of this temple two years ago got my interest all piqued up again.
Here I was thinking that aside from the few renowned cave temples of Ipoh, there are no other temples of much grander scale in Ipoh. But I was wrong.
Seemingly, a certain Mr Fu Ah Kau; owner of an orchard in Tambun built this temple and transformed the formerly dilapidated wooden form to a commendable setup of temples, pagodas and shrines today. Fu was a follower of the late Nepalese meditation master; Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, hence the Tibetian inspirations for this temple.
