Not One, Batu Caves

This is the last leg of my Malaysia tour! Well, aside from theme parks and food hopping, my ultimate obsession when traveling is knowing the roots and/or religious orientation of a certain city. Discovered in 1982, Batu Caves is a sacred place for Hindus in Malaysia, basically the said place consist of three main caves and a number of smaller ones. The caves are made of limestone and 400 meters long and 100 meter high. Its main attraction is the large statue of the Hindu God at the entrance, besides a steep 272 climb up (which I kinda regret climbing) its steps to finally view the stunning skyline of the city center.  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. P.S. Sorry for the punny title, can’t help it.
