Batu Caves: Climbing A Steep Flight of 272 Steps!


Batu Caves

The statue of Murugan, a Hindu deity, is standing tall outside the Batu Caves. No wonder people always take photos of this statue! It's so huge. In fact, it's the world's biggest statue of this Hindu deity (42.7 meters high). Source: Wiki

As a tourist, of course I took the chance to have a photo too. My friends and I went there early morning via train. There was no entrance fee so you're free to go up the biggest temple cave 272 steps up. 


Batu Caves is a limestone hill which has a series of cave temples. Your visit to Malaysia is probably not complete without heading to Batu Caves. Aside from Petronas Towers, it's one of the most famous tourist attractions in their country. 

The cave complex is mainly a religious site. To get to the biggest cave called the Cathedral Cave or Temple Cave, you have to climb a steep flight of 272 steps. No sweat!

Although there was construction going on when we went, the caves were still magnificent and beautiful. To me it's like a mix of modern and traditional since it has already undergone restorations. I like the feel of being inside the cave though. There were several people but thankfully, the tourists were respectful of the caves' peace.

This was the view from above. There were monkeys roaming around freely so be careful! They weren't particularly threatening or what, but I kinda got scared. Haha. If you bring food, expect that they'll get it from you. We didn't bring food but we had to avoid them because I felt like they would jump over me anytime. LOL

Italy feels, with all the birds and stuff. ♥

This is just a quick update! I'm working on a passion project right now and I've gotten so busy with it because I want to focus my energy and time on it. I intend to post once a week here on my blog to finish all posts about my trip. But after that or by the start of next year, you will see a decline of posts. I'll still find time to read and comment on your blogs for sure! That has always been a part of me, so thank you for still being here! ♥
