    thanks for the advise everyone... i will go over and come back with some field reports if i manage to find it...

    the tv show i tink was "Hey Singapore" and host was Lisa Ang...
    as for parang... it will be useful though i dun have one... but many have gone there before... so it should not be a problem...

    Sorry Reportage... no intentions to invite u to the trekking to the shrine... will be going with some of my friends instead...
    maybe u can plan your own outing there

    Not much to be seen, based on other peoples' field visits. Couple of bowls, the cleanising stone block pool, the steps, the bridge stumps across the river. Area probably overgrown with flora by now.

    never heard of that, even if there are rumours, it's only hearsay....there's still no evidence. People only tend to believe when they do experience it for themselves.

    Don't need to bash thru, there is a small trail and people mark it with red paint on the trees.

    Ya, nothing much to see, the only thing worth photographing is the small stone pool and the step. No special carving on those stone, just full of algae and creepers. It is under heavy canopy, good to have tripod along.

    Hi all... we did went to the shrine... and found the stairs, the cleansing pool... etc...
    we did not do a good research and bash through... and we suffered... after coming back, i check on all the info i gotten and actually there are many ways to get to the shrine... the easiest is through a short waterpoint... the hardest is to bash through...

    imho... nothing much to take pictures of inside... and bring lots and lots of water!!!
