Batu Caves feature a series of limestone caves which one must climb 272 steps up the hill to get into the caves.

It is said to be the largest Hindu shrine outside of India. DSCN7158Unless you’re Hindu, Batu Caves may not hold that much significant importance to you, except an overview of the town once you climb up the 272 steps.

DSCN7145The limestone caves are pretty empty and the attraction is attractive because of the huge gold statue outside of the caves. DSCN7155Beware of monkeys as there are plenty of them. DSCN7158They might rob you of your stuff so women, guard your purses and men, guard your stuff carefully.DSCN7146

This is a simple MRT ride from KL Sentral and made a great day trip out of Kuala Lumpur.   DSCN7147

Although Batu Caves are listed in the top 10 attractions in Kuala Lumpur, if you have nothing else to do in Kuala Lumpur and try to kill time, then go for it.

Otherwise, save your time for other attraction(s) instead unless Hinduism  is of significant to you.
