Absolutely beautiful temple, just got to prepare to sweat and move a little. It's over 200 steps up to the caves. Do take good care of your belongings as there are hundreds of cheeky little monkeys around ready to snatch your things at any given chance! Once at the top you'll be rewarded with a great great view! The architecture of the temples and sculptures are worth looking at too, very intricate and detailed.
Amazing! Temples inside Caves! Be prepared to climb up lots of steps but so worth it! Inside the main cave you get to see the sky from the opening inside the mountain! Be warned no tank tops and shorts allowed inside as these caves are temples. You can hire clothing outside. I wore a short sleeved top and pants to below my knees and fortunatle that was ok!
I visited Batu caves in 12 hrs transit time. From airport to KL centre it will take 40 min time(depends on traffic). From KL centre to batu caves metro is available. So reaching batu caves is not a big deal. In batu caves the centre of attraction is Murugan temple. The caves are very beautifull and feels like rainy. you need to hike several steps to reach the temple. Finally You can get blessings from Lord Murugan.
Apart from the intense foul smell of garbage and sh*t that one has to deal with leading up to the caves, this was a beautiful attraction. I advise going there by train before midday, as by that time the sun is out in its full glory. Beware, there are monkeys around, but for the most part, they don’t bother people. Just make sure you don’t have food on your person!
a great place to see this enormous Buddha statue. just watch out for the monkeys when you go up the stairs to the temple.
