Doesn’t take very long to see this sight. Internal stone staircases are a bit dangerous if your balance is poor as there are not hand rails in places. Thought there could be more information boards in place.

Nice place to walk around to see the architecture. Entrance fees are pretty reasonable. Quite interesting to find a castle near Ipoh.

The castle has a beautiful story behind, and the architecture is quite interesting to check out, the place is not big since it is unfinished, but still a good quick stop to learn a little about the history.

Definitely a fantastic place for people who loves historical things, also who wouldn't love a castle! The place is fairly free to explore, you can even climb up to the top of the castle to get a magnificent view of the surroundings. The castle is...More

The easiest way is take a taxi from Ipoh. Even if you take a bus to Batu Gajah town you still need a taxi to The castle as it's located a distance from the town.
