Afternoon tour of the Batu Caves

| May 15, 2020

A short drive north from Kuala Lumpur, the Batu Caves encompass three large caves and a few smaller ones, set in a limestone cliff face. The largest, known as Cathedral Cave, is reached by a climb up 272 steps, and features a significant Hindu shrine. The caves attract many tourists from Kuala Lumpur, but are also an important pilgrimage site for the Hindu community, and the centre for the annual Thaipusam festival.
