    BATU CAVES IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR HINDU SHRINES OUTSIDE INDIA, DEDICATED TO LORD MURUGAN. IT IS THE FOCAL POINT OF HINDU FESTIVAL OF THAIPUSAM IN MALAYSIA. IT IS ALSO KNOWN AS THE 10TH CAVES OR HILL FOR LORD MURUGA AS IT IS ONE OF THE TEN MOST IMPORTANT SHRINES IN INDIA AND MALAYSIA. THE LORD MURUGAN STATUE AT THE FOOT OF BATU CAVES IS THE SECOND TALLEST HINDU DEITY STATUE IN THE WORLD WITH A HEROIC HEIGHT OF 42.7 METRES (140 FT.). THE LIMESTONE FORMING BATU CAVES IS SAID TO BE AROUND 400 MILLION YEARS OLD. SOME OF THE CAVE ENTRANCES WERE USED AS SHELTERS BY THE ABORIGINAL TEMUAN / BESISI PEOPLE (A TRIBE OF ORANG ASLI). AS EARLY AS 1860, CHINESE SETTLERS BEGAN EXCAVATING GUANO FOR FERTILISING THEIR VEGETABLE PATCHES. HOWEVER, THEY BECAME FAMOUS ONLY AFTER THE LIMESTONE HILLS WERE RECORDED BY COLONIAL AUTHORITIES INCLUDING DALY AND SYERS AS WELL AS AMERICAN NATURALIST, WILLIAM HORNADAY IN 1878. THE HISTORY OF BATU CAVES STARTED IN 1891 WHEN MR. K. THAMBOOSAMY PILLAI, WHO ALSO FOUNDED THE SRI MAHA MARIAMMAN TEMPLE DHEVASTHANAM, KUALA LUMPUR, SENT HIS VERY CLOSE ASSOCIATES, SRI THIRUVENGADAM PILLAI AND SRI KANTHAPA THEVAR TO SURVEY FOR AN IDEAL AND SUITABLE PLACE OF WORSHIP FOR LORD SRI MURUGAN. IT WAS IN THAT YEAR, THAT THE INFLUENTIAL DESCENDANT OF INDIAN IMMIGRANTS FROM TAMIL NADU, INDIA, MR. K. THAMBOOSAMY PILLAI INSTALLED THE ‘MURTI’ OR CONSECRATED IDOL OF SRI SUBRAMANIAR SWAMY (LORD MURUGAN) IN THE 400-FT. HIGH TEMPLE CAVE. FROM 1892 ONWARDS, THE THAIPUSAM FESTIVAL IN THE TAMIL MONTH OF THAI (WHICH FALLS IN LATE JANUARY/EARLY FEBRUARY) HAS BEEN CELEBRATED THERE AS THE ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF BATU CAVES. WOODEN STEPS UP TO THE TEMPLE CAVE WERE BUILT IN 1920 AND HAVE SINCE BEEN REPLACED BY 272 CONCRETE STEPS. RISING ALMOST 100 M ABOVE THE GROUND, THE BATU CAVES TEMPLE COMPLEX CONSISTS OF THREE MAIN CAVES AND A FEW SMALLER ONES. THE BIGGEST, REFERRED TO AS CATHEDRAL CAVE OR TEMPLE CAVE, HAS A 100 M-HIGH CEILING AND FEATURES ORNATE HINDU SHRINES. TO REACH IT, VISITORS MUST CLIMB A PRECIPITOUS FLIGHT OF 272 STEPS.
