A Calligraphy Painting at Perak Cave Temple

This is an artist's work of chinese calligraphy painted on the limestone wall of a natural vertical rainforest. It reads "Buddha".

Can you see a little bench on the ground and the concrete stand in front of the painting? To see this real piece of art, you need to climb a total of about 400 steps, the journey starts from inside the Perak Cave Temple, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia.

There is an art gallery at Perak Cave Temple, showcasing chinese calligraphy, poetry, art and culture with Hindu, Buddhist and Taoist influences.

To see more of these paintings, you may visit here.

This is my entry for Monochrome Maniacs. My grateful thanks to Aileni for hosting this wonderful site. For other MM posts around the world, please click here.


  1. Cool cave Chinese calligraphy!

  2. Neat and a lovely view after a long climb.

  3. Very nice in black and white. Even the limestone cliffs look painted.


  4. I'm glad you took this photo then, because I doubt if I can climb 400 steps!

    The calligraphy and the patterns on the limestone are both beautiful. And somehow, they look like they belong together.

  5. Has something that ABC doesn't.

  6. i hvn't seen this before..

  7. Quite lovely, the rocks look as though they have been painted to highlight the calligraphy.
