About Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur

The 400 million year old limestone caves (but only about 100 year old temples) are the most sacred Hindu location in the country, and definitely one of the most sacred Hindi locations in the world outside of India.

The main attraction at the limestone caves is the 42.7 metres high statue of Lord Murugan, a Hindu deity. This is also the largest known statue of Lord Murugan. During the Thaipusam Festival, the statue is the end point of the processionat the Sri Mariamman Temple in KL city centre. Over a million pilgrims gather here at festival time.

Within the largest of the chambers of the Batu Caves, the Cathedral Cave, there are some beautiful Hindu shrines, which can only be reached after climbing 272 steep steps. Hindu sculptures and paintings fill the Art Gallery Cave and Museum Cave. In the Ramayana Cave, you’ll find paintings depicting the epic story of Lord Rama.

Tip: Buy peanuts from the locals, and feed the many Macaque monkeys at the site.
