GUA TAMBUN

Gua Tambun is a prehistoric rock art site situated in Gunong Panjang limestone hill, just outside the border of Ipoh Town. Gua Tambun was once known as a sanctuary for local spiritual ceremony or as an oracle site. Over the years, researchers discovered huge clusters of prehistoric rock art on its west-facing cliff. These rock paintings, collective known as Tambun Rock Art, were dated to approximately 4,000 - 2,500 years ago.
