This is the Wishing Tree at Kwan Yin Tong Cave Temple in Jalan Raja Nazrin Shah, Ipoh. It is designed like the Hong Kong Wishing Tree. The 12.16m (about 4 storeys ) tall tree here is said to carry the spirit of a Tibetan deity who can grant wishes.
People can write their wishes on red and yellow joss paper tied to an orange and throw them up to hang on the tree. If successful, the wishes will come true. It is believed that the higher it is hung, the better the chances of the wishes coming true. If you are not successful within 3 throwing attempts, it would mean that your wish is too greedy!
The temple is opened daily and has been visited by many people, local and foreign. Anyone can come here to make a wish. The temple secretary is Mr Ho You Meng.
If you happen to be here, will you try this feat?
