Perak Tong is another very famous cave temple, located north of the city of Ipoh by the Kuala Kangsar road. It was established in 1926 and is famous for its murals.

Also north of Ipoh is Gunung Cheroh. This has 2 well known cave temples, Nam Tou Ngam and Eight Immortals Cave, but I haven't seen any cards of the latter cave. Anderson Road is sometimes printed or written on cave cards, this road is now known as Jalan Raja Musa Aziz and runs in front of Gunung Cheroh.
