Hello Kuala Lumpur
Since we knew we would be heading to Kuala Lumpur for a month way back in January I had my list. My list of must-sees and on that list was Batu Caves. It is considered one of Kuala Lumpur’s most frequented tourist attractions. What draws the many tourists is the juxtaposition of the massive statue erected outside welcoming you. The other, the 272 steep stairs. These stairs take you up the limestone hill where 3 different caves await you. It’s also considered a religious landmark. It has been a Hindu temple for over a hundred years. The temple features many idols and statues erected inside and around it. As such it a mix of those there for religious purposes and those like myself to see the caves. It is said that interiors of the limestone are around 400 million years old!
