Fun activity in the city. Escape the heat by climbing up the stairs and venturing into the cool caves above. Nice place to just hang out with family and friends visiting from other countries. Treat yourself to a nice lunch elsewhere, most places here are...More

Took the lazy route and paid 50 for a cab out there. Glad I saved the energy for the stairs. Obviously there is a very impressive statue surrounded by some tourist trap shops. It is well worth the journey and the climb. The cave at...More

Kuala Lumpur has a modest list of 'must-sees' after the Petronius Towers, but Batu is probably near the top. Unfortunately it's a bit of a building site at the moment, with work around the entrance and many piles of bricks waiting for something in the...More

It's a must see in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. The tall golden painted statue stands out front. As you make the 272 steps make sure you look for the outside artwork. The inside has more steps. Up and down.

Definitely a must-see if you go to Malaysia, about 10 km away from Kuala Lumpur. We went there by car but apparently it is easely reachable by public transports. There are 3 caves: the Temple cave (free entrance), which is situated all the way up...More

i saw there is sign board about it. but it was closed. better you may ask from the local shops. they may help you. no idea about shave. but there are so many shopping streets. you will find.
Morning or afternoon is ideal for visiting batu caves temple along with Ramayan caves? I'm going with wife and 3 year kid. I couldn't make it there before 9.30am. So I think I will reach there around 10 or 10.30 at best. Is that good enough? Thanks.
