Batu Caves and Genting Highlands

Before heading out to Batu Caves, we went for breakfast, the Malaysian way.

Batu Caves is a an iconic and popular tourist attraction in Selangor. 

Site of a Hindu temple and shrine, Batu Caves attracts thousands of worshippers and tourists, especially during the annual Hindu festival, Thaipusam.  

A limestone outcrop located just north of Kuala Lumpur, Batu Caves has three main caves featuring temples and Hindu shrines.  

Its main attraction is the large statue of the Hindu God at the entrance, besides a steep 272 climb up its steps to finally view the stunning skyline of the city centre.  

Monkeys frolic around the caves, and it is a popular spot for rock climbing enthusiasts. Paintings and scenes of Hindu Gods can also be seen in the Ramayana Cave. 

Batu Caves is a place where you should not miss on your next visit to Malaysia!
