The Gua Charas is a limestone cave that was formed millions and millions of years ago, and holds great religious importance for Hindu as well as Buddhist devotees. This temple cave is located inside a limestone hill known as Bukit Charas, and is located around 25 kilometers to the northwest of Kuantan in Pahang.
The 400 million-year-old granite and limestone massif reaches 355 meters in height, and is dotted with the symbols and statues of the devotees. Inside the temple cave, you will come across an idol of the Sleeping Buddha, as well as the Jala Lingam, which represents the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva.
The unique backdrop and natural setting of Gua Charas make it a must-visit place, not just for religious purposes, but to also explore this naturally existing marvel. Other than the main temple cave, you can explore some other open-sided caves as well, which are located further up on the mountain.
