The spot is in very reach from KL with only RM2 travelling with enjoyable KTM you can visit Batu Caves. The Spot is a Hindu temple with more than 300 steps to reach the cave. A nice spot.

This was an interesting place but it was so dirty and in need of repairs . Why not charge a few ringets to enter the cave and spruce the attraction up a bit. As for the monkeys maybe it was their day off as we only saw 2 monkeys and some roosters , but lots of pigeons. Overall a disappointing... More

I enjoyed the history of the caves, watch out for the monkeys they are very bold and can be aggressive. if you are dressed in shorts or a short skirt they have scarves you can hire to cover your legs, I had a long skirt on so had no problems.

Funny how affinity works. A serene and tranquil landscape set the thought. A click of the mindscape set the motion. With deities or devas cirambulating in my subconscious universe ,Batu Caves ,yes indeed. To sum up my thought,below is my impromptu poem for this heavenly spiritual enlightening experience: Nature it seems painting with vibrancy the colors for us to see... More

A must to do in Kuala Lumpur as it's one of the most famous Hindu place in South East Asia for ceremonies. The gold statue is giant and wonderful. But temples are not fabulous. You'd better go to other places for that!

I went yesterday with family to Bath Caves. I was hesitant to go first, but when reached there, I was really amazing experience. They have a huge status at the beginning, also they have 272 steps climbing. Up to the cave. Up there, it is a huge cave inside the mountain. With huge opening above open to sky. A lot... More

There are lots of stairs there. Make sure you have energy to go. Also beware of those monkeys. They might take your belongings like sunglasses.

Our journey to Batu Caves started from downtown KLCC but it took us a long while to get there due to the traffic jam. My friend had his 1st share of culture shock when we parked our car along the roadside and being extorted RM10 by some Indians on motorbike allegedly for parking fee when it's just a normal road....

Lots of stairs for not much at the top. You can take the train up, but it thought it was a disappointment .
