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.

KLセントラルから半日旅行で楽しめます。最寄りの駅を降りると早速、猿がお出迎え、しばし歩くとカラフルな階段が見え、金色の大きな像が経ちます。色とりどりの階段を登り最上階を過ぎるとヒンドゥーのこれまたカラフル寺院なが構え、宗教的でありながら、来るものを楽しませます。とてもユニークで楽しめる寺院であり、半日旅行となると思います。 more »Guests can enjoy a half-day trip from KL Central. As soon as you get off the nearest station, a monkey greets you, and when you walk around for a while, you will see colorful stairs, and a large golden statue passes through. Climb the colorful stairs and pass the top floor to enjoy what comes, while religious, with this and colorful temple in Hindu. It is a very unique and enjoyable temple, and I think it will be a half-day trip.
Great tourist site. My friends from China enjoyed it a lot but one thing tho we must ware long skirts or trousers for women who wants to go up the upper level. This is to respect the Deities.
The new Batu caves is quite different from the Batu caves that I've been to previously. They now have dress code to respect the temple which is very good. They have renovated the place into a few temple complex with a big parking area at the bottom to cater for the parking needs.
