The guide, I think his name was Sasi, was very informative and entertaining at the same time. Consequently the coach trip went quite quickly. I felt 1.5 hours in the temple was too long, and could have done without the batik shop stop, but otherwise it was very interesting.

Batu Caves and Lord Murugan Shrine

Following pick-up, enjoy a ride over to the Batu Caves located 8 miles away from the Malaysian city in the Gombak district. Embark on a comprehensive tour of the Caves, well-known for limestone rocks over 400 million years old, and some beautiful Hindu shrines surrounding the area.

The Caves are also Malaysia's most visited Hindu shrine, dedicated to Lord Murugan, the son of Lord Shiva. The temple's crowing glory is the gigantic statue of Lord Murugan, also the third tallest statue of a Hindu deity in the world. As you admire the surroundings, learn about the annual Hindu festival, Thaipusam, celebrated here on the full moon between January and February. For a dose of adventure, you can climb up the 272 stairs to the top of the cave entrance system and reap the reward of gorgeous city views for your efforts.
