The Batu Caves is one of the must see attractions in Malaysia. You can get a direct train from KL Sentral for just MYR 4 and you go in air conditioned comfort, get down at the last station called Batu caves, walk out and you are there. Carry a bottle of water with you but keep it hidden in your... More

It is only good for the strong & the healthy ones. If you do not climb to the top - you haven't seen it all. An awe of mystery covers the caves..

Lovely to see people carrying gifts up the steps, the monkeys and pigeons are fun to look at and add to the experience.

Last saw the caves ten years ago. Must say was a little disappointed on visiting this time. Very easy to get to- lots of taxis takes you there and easy to find taxis back. Lots and lots of stairs- so a real good work out. Women need to make sure their legs are covered - so they charge $5.00 for... More

Impressive when you see the massive golden statue and the 270 odd steps, you think what's up the top! The view on the top is ok but it's way better downstairs. It's a shame they don't clean it up and everybody leaves his garbage everywhere. The statues and the stairs and view from outside is way better.

Hindu temple set out and within a set of caves in an area surrounding Kuala Lumpur. Very easy to get here. Take the komuter train to Batu Caves, departing from KL Sentral every 30 min or so. Return ticket is MYR$4.00 p/p. The big statue at the outside of the cave is really, really impressive. The climb of the 250... More

Batu Caves is one place make you think. First because is so impressive. Than because is quite old and mystic, and the magic in the place make you fly to the years and believes of the people who construct the place.

Interesting and from the moment you see the massive golden statue and the 270 odd steps, you think what's up the top! Well not much really, a cave a few monkeys and lots of confused tourists. If I had known what to expect I wouldn't have climbed all that way and nearly had a heart attack😜 the best view is... More

The Batu Caves are definitely a must see for any trip to Kuala Lumpur. Skip the tours and the taxis, and just take the monorail there. Many seem to suggest spending 2-3 hours there, I thought 40 minutes was pushing it. Be aware that it is VERY hot there, so try to go in the morning. Make sure to bring... More

Take KTM Komuter train from KL Sentral to Batu caves which costs only 2 MYR, after you give the ticket to the collector before you leave the station, then just follow another passengers to the station gate and you will be in the area of Batu caves. Batu caves is a good place to understand about Hindu religion and the... More
