We loved the view as it is overlooking the lush green slopes of virgin forests; the Chin Swee Temple is where you can snap many beautiful photos of the hills.
Many people come to this temple for pray for better health, wealth or prosperity. 
I was told if you have a wish, you can come this temple to pray. 
Many people have got their wishes come true.
