Easily one of the most frequented attractions in all of Kuala Lumpur, Batu Caves is a limestone hill that houses three large caves and many smaller ones.
It is a 100-year old temple that features a colorful collection of statues and idols both within and without the numerous caverns that pepper Batu Hill. With in-cave formations of gorgeous limestone that are estimated as being 400 million years old, the temple at Batu Caves is carved directly into the landscape with breathtaking detail and precision.
Cathedral Cave is the most expansive cavern at this site, and easily the most popular. It houses multiple shrines beneath an arched, 100-meter ceiling.
The Museum Cave and Art Gallery can be found in the cave temples that lie just at the foot of Batu Hill. Every year, thousands of people flock to Batu Caves Kuala Lumpur in celebration of the Hindu festival Thaipusam.Places nearby:
