This is a little temple set upon a hillside, so there are lots of steps leading up the the halls, the garden, the koi pond, and the suspension bridge. The main hall faces the road, and is easily accessible by two short flight of stairs. Visiting the other areas requires climbing more steps, but there are several chairs for resting. There are plenty of opportunities for photo-taking with the various statues, and excellent view of the area.

The koi pond has a tiny bridge across it, and the plants in the herbs garden are laid out neatly, and labelled. There is a short suspension bridge across to another hill where there is a giant statue of the Monkey King, but there was construction going on, so we did not cross.

There was a special celebration planned for that weekend that we went, so the entire place was spic and span, and beautifully decorated. We concluded our trip with fresh fruit, and refreshing juices from the stalls outside the temple.

We do visit the temple and the main attraction being the suspension bridge. Crossing it means hiking up the hill to the huge Monkey God statue. Every year during the Chinese New Year, the room beneath the statue will have a water curtain. Crossing into it and you have to do the customary 3 circles of clock wise and counter clock wise for luck.
The area at the top of the temple have plenty of statues for phototaking and this thrills the kids.
That apart, the area surrounding the temples have a lot of stalls selling fruits, drinks and much more.
All in all a good recreational visit and don’t forget the many restaurants in the nearby area.

There is a lot of walking up and down so make sure you have comfortable shoes on. The temple is interesting to wonder around but the most amazing thing is the giant size Monkey that looks out over the area thats been built on top of a hillside. You have to walk across a suspended wire bridge and then up a road to the Monkey. The day I was there some people had set up stalls and were selling plants and other items from the back of cars and vans. its a interesting and something different to see and great for the photographer in you. If your hungry when you leave drive down to the bottom of the road and there is a restaurant on the Right hand side where the food is quite good and ample parking. Also when you are leaving the area down the road on the left hand side is an animal farm but if you love animals it will sadden you to see how poorly they are treated and disturbing the cages they are kept in.
Remember to have a comfortable pair of shoes as the walking is quite a lot and steps to negotiate. There is places to buy drinks if required. Keep hydrated.

Quaint temple in the middle of no where with beautifully maintained landscape and hill. Hike up the hill to get closer to a huge Sun Wukong @ Monkey God statue and enjoy the view. The temple was pretty crowded when we went on a Sunday. The grounds are interesting, filled with statues and a nice park to walk around. At the entrance there are a row of stalls selling fruits, snacks and drinks. Plenty of parking available.

A temple on the hill, need to climb & climb. The suspension bridge there is one of the attractions for the temple.
Do some hiking and you can reach the hilltop to see the big Sun WuKong statue and the nice view of Broga's village.

For those of you from Kuala Lumpur thinking of a day trip somewhere, this is a good option which you can combine with the nearby rabbit farm, hiking up Broga Hill and eating in one of the nearby restaurants. There is a bit of climbing involved but there are good views of the hills and photo opportunities of the statues. There is also a mini museum and some stalls nearby to buy stuff back.

Lovely and amazing views! The Monkey God statue is marvellous! A tough walk for a couch potato like me but the view is worth it.

Sam Hill and Bukit Gondol Hike near to Sak Dato Temple.

Park near to Sak Dato Temple in Broga an open space.
Toilets available onsite at Sak Dato Temple.
A short walk on tar road and then turn into trekking path.
A couple of loops trails available for selection so you can choose your poison.
Estimated 1-2 hours for short hike and can go longer if you do the entire area.
Not recommended for kids as quite a bit of scrambling and challenging elevations.
Some parts are not covered so bring your bucket hat or get your neck sun tanned.

A temple with 140years history with the world Guiness record of the tallest monkey god statue in Malaysia

You’ll find the main temple at the foot of the hill, and the largest statue of Monkey King, or Sun Wukong, in Malaysia at the top of the hill. The main temple are connected with a open air bridge to the hill heading to hill too for the statue

Worth the visit there with your family as we came here with a toddler and baby in stroller and had a good walk after early dinner
