The parrots phototaking station at Batu Cave's Cave Villa is a MUST skip station/shop. The photographer takes the photos very quickly and he does not let you choose the best photos that you want. Instead the photographer himself selects the best photos for you and...More

A great experience of Hinduism at the top of the stairs. Interesting to know different deities and people doing their rituals inside the cave. There are also lots of birds and monkeys on the way up. They're not harmful but just be cautious.

It was one of the most interesting attractions i've ever visited. The giant statue of Lord Murugan in front of the cave temple was very impressive. The cave itself was also stunning. There were monkeys all around. It definitely worths a visit in KL!

Which train station is closest to petrona twin towers to get to Batu caves. Everyone keeps on talking about KL Sentra but that's really far from petrona towers. Thanks

Get the underground train from KLCC to Sentral. Get off, change lines to the Batu Caves train. Very easy, cheap and quick. That's how I did it.

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.

We got there at 12pm (lunchtime) and it was perfectly fine, no lines or anything. Enjoy the walk to the top and the view from the caves!
