An Afternoon in Batu Caves

In my previous trip to Malaysia, one of the places I visited was Batu Caves.

Wikipedia has explained that Batu Caves is a limestone hill, which has a series ofcaves and cave temples, 13 kilometres (8 mi) north of Kuala Lumpur. It takes its name from the Sungai Batu or Batu River, which flows past the hill. The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to LordMurugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia and will be very crowded at the festival time.

Well, this visit was very tiring, walking up and down almost 300 steps proved that my stamina wasn’t that good! and that’s also the reason you can see a lot of people resting halfway up or down.

At the temple inside the cave, there were also some Indians who come to pray and some tourists.
