A Short Visit To Gopeng Town

Whenever our friend is in Ipoh, we planned a short foodie trip somewhere not too far from Ipoh. This time we planned to have lunch in Temoh since they have not been there before. On the way to Temoh, we made a short stop in Gopeng because they wanted to known the locations of the 2 museums in Gopeng. 

They will be back to visit the museum on their next trip but we did stop to pay a short visit to the smaller museum. This small museum is now housed inside the old wooden building which was once the stable of late Eu Kong (founder of Eu Yang Sang). The old stable was given a face lift before the museum shifted in.

 In the old days, this was the stable for keeping horses.


Some trust in chariots and some in horses,

but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.

(Psalm 20:7, New International Version-NIV)

  7. I LOVE this place!! And my favorites are the wall murals. Especially the horse sticking his head out of the barn door, and the washer girl with her bicycle. Of course, I have never seen a water cannon for copper mining. I guess maybe nowadays they don't use them to mine, but how fascinating! You chose the perfect bible verse, too.
