Cave postcards - Perak - Gunung Rapat

Perak has many cave temples which have been well documented. Note that the English spellings of the Chinese names are done phonetically and therefore vary. For instance thin/tian/thean/thien, and tong/dong.

The postcards on this page are 2 temples in Gunung Rapat. Nam Thean Tong is the second cave from the road and it's upper levels has wooden floors. The next cave is Sam Poh Tong, one of the most famous of the cave temples. I have not seen any postcards showing the interior of the cave temples.
