Batu Caves

When I was studying in KL, I used to pass by Batu Caves but I didn't lift my foot there at all. So recently I decided to visit it at least once.


So here I was..almost reaching.
I could see the statue which is a symbol of Batu Caves.


There's even a watery place by the cave.


The golden statue of Lord Murugan stood proudly in front of the cave.
A 42.7m (140.09 feet high) high, the statue was unveiled in January 2006,
having taken 3 years to construct.
It is the tallest Lord Murugan statue in the world.


Intricate structures.


Birds resting on the structures.


Hindu deities.


The limestone forming Batu Caves is said to be around 400 million years old.


Took a picture with my girl when we were halfway through.


Almost reaching..


Finally, we had climbed the 272 steps to the temple.


Intriguing stalactites..


A small temple.


Many devotees gathered together and were praying.


From atop, I could get a lovely view of the nearby place.


On my way down, I saw these devotees climbing up the flight of stairs
without even taking a breather.


Just before I touched the ground, I had a shot of those deities.
I was fascinated by the one with a human head but animal body!


The day was very hot! We were famished and thus headed for our lunch.

  7. The first time I went to the Batu Caves was 2 years ago during Thaipusam. The atmosphere was 'electric', one has to be moving among the crowds and observing the rituals and of course, walk up the steps with the thousands. Once in a while, I do not mind crowds. That's why I was there!! I
