Explore a set of atmospheric Hindu temples at Batu Caves. Located in impressive 400-million-year-old limestone caves, the temples were founded in 1891 by an Indian trader. Today, they have grown into a revered, iconic place of worship and one of the most visited Hindu shrines outside of India. Admire the 42.7 m (140 ft) high statue of Murugan, a Hindu deity, that marks the cave entrance, and head inside to see the attractive interplay of manmade and natural artistry.

  • It's a good tourist attraction. On the foot hill there's a well maintained Hindu temple in South Indian culture. Soothing. Serene. Steps should be climbed slowly. When you climb the steps uphill, you reach a few caves which have one good temple and a few other idols of Hindu Gods. The place is well kept. Clean. Small souvenirs can be purchased from the street vendors on the base . Parking facility is good. People in general are friendly.
  • Very amazing temple to visit. If you are visiting Malaysia, you should definitely visit this temple. You will sometimes feel very blessed. It's easy to reach here. There is a train that comes straight here. So there are no complicity in visiting here.
