Explore a set of atmospheric Hindu temples at Batu Caves. Located in impressive 400-million-year-old limestone caves, the temples were founded in 1891 by an Indian trader. Today, they have grown into a revered, iconic place of worship and one of the most visited Hindu shrines outside of India. Admire the 42.7 m (140 ft) high statue of Murugan, a Hindu deity, that marks the cave entrance, and head inside to see the attractive interplay of manmade and natural artistry.

Batu Caves is one of the "must see" destinations of KL. Even if you've only got a day layover... Make the trip. The caves are stunning. The colors are breathtaking. The temples are awe-inspiring. And the monkeys are just cheeky and fun!
If you are visiting Malaysia - you should definitely visit Batu Caves. The Caves are very old. It's structure inside is totally different and unimaginable. Looking at the structure in real is totally a different experience. While going upstairs -- you'll see many monkeys around. Make sure - you don't keep anything in your Front Pocket. Monkeys can take things from you. Try to keep a distance. They will give you a very good pose and can come close to you as well. But nothing to worry about. It's really good to see and hangout with them ;) Definitely recommended to visit and see the beauty of Batu Caves. Still reading, don't forget to hit the Like button below :)
