Batu Caves

Batu Caves


<p>Definitely worth going to. The cave is impressive, and the innermost temple area with the &quot;hole&quot; on the ceiling is really a lovely sight. There are even monkeys on that area and they climb up and down the hole. Remember, don&#39;t smile at them.<br /> Before the caves, there&#39;s also a lot to enjoy. Lots of food stalls outside that carry local delicacies for a decent price. Yum.<br /> Then there&#39;s the feeding area for the pigeons which is also fun but you have to be careful as it&#39;s covered with bird poop. Yuk.<br /> Then there&#39;s the gigantic statue of the Hindu god of war (forgot the name). And the stairs just next to it.<br /> Climbing up the stairs isn&#39;t really as exhausting as I thought, as long as you take a breather every now and then, and there are areas in the stairs to do that. The stairs is a nice place for a photo op, and the view while climbing is also nice.</p> <p>I&rsquo;ve been to Batu Caves many times, this place is located on the way on each of our malaysian road trips. A beautiful statue of Murugan can be seen here.&nbsp;It will be damn crowded during Thaipusam - a local festival.&nbsp;</p>
