    Since its inception in 2000, Orang Utan Island has progressed from being a sanctuary, where visitors experienced first-hand awareness and education on the orangutan, to a recognised ex-situ conservation facility and referral centre for the endangered Bornean orangutan.

He imported several Tamil workers, and bricks and marble from India. William had a dream. He wanted the biggest and most opulent mansion in Malaya to spite the other snobbish bureaucrats who once doubted his wealth and ability in more desperate times. And he dreamed big. The mansion itself was several storeys high with a huge planned tower, an indoor tennis court and even a rooftop entertainment complex to host parties. It almost had Malaya’s first-ever elevator. Almost. But William’s destiny wasn’t to be as once more his life turned on a dime. Poor investments dwindled his wealth and souring relationships with the other administrators made his future look bleak.

As Chong Sen Ye was mainly involved in the planning and development of the cave temple, his wife went all out to look for donations to carry out the plan, locally and internationally. After more than 50 years of diligent and careful work n and around the cave temple, Perak Tong has become one of the best cave temples in Malaysia. Chong Sen Yee passed away in 1980 and his wife Choong Chan Yoke in 1983, handing the heritage to the son Chong Yin Chat. He put even greater effort into the temple and thus enhanced Perak Tong into an international tourist spot in Perak.

    There are several major attractions available at the temple like the beautiful landscape flower garden in front of the temple. Here you can feed the monkeys in the morning and late evenings. As you enter the temple, you will be greeted with a 40 feel tall Buddha statue. The Inner part of the cave has natural limestone wonders and decorated with statute of deities.
