Batu Caves

Batu Caves

One of the best tourist spot that you should not miss is the Batu Caves. The enchanted temple and shrine has 272 steps which will enable you to climb and see the beautiful overlooking of the place. Beside the steep stairways is the giant statue of Lord Murugan who is one of Hindu’s God. It also the tallest statue in Malaysia at 42.7 metres (140 ft) in height. It located at the Sir Murugan Perumal Kovil at the foot of Batu Caves. It took 3 years of construction and unveiled in January 2006 during Thaipusam festival.While going upstairs, you will able to see numbers of monkeys. Just be careful because they may take what you have on your hand!

HOW TO GET THERE?

Since the hotel we were in was walking distance from KL Sentral, the best transportation was to take the KTM Komuter. The dropping point is exactly at Batu Station so you will never get lost since at the Batu Station, you will see the giant statue of Lord Murugan.

At the entrance, you will see this giant statue of a person with the mouth of a monkey. Maybe this statue belongs to Gods of Hindus.

Aside from the stairs going to the top of the Batu Cave, there are other attractions around like the pond below where you can feed the fishes.

Aside from the fish, there are many birds around the place! There are also souvenir shops (even inside the cave upstairs) and restaurants.

We’re almost there! Just stopping by to rest and take some pictures! Oxygen please! Just a few more steps…

Be careful of monkeys! This monkey is trying to get my husband’s bottled water! Hahaha… 

Inside the cave, you may see a lot of tourist, worshipers, monkeys, statues of Hindu’s God, temple,souvenir shops, even chickens of those who were residing there, bats and birds. It feels weird to hear the sound of their worship songs but we need to respect their culture. 

Another great experience that should not be missed! Thank God for this great experience!
