This is one of the holiest Hindu shrines in Malaysia and a popular tourist attraction. The Caves are popular not only for being the southernmost limestone outcrop in the Northern Hemisphere, but the labyrinth that makes up the Batu Caves also supports a variety of exotic wildlife. There is a 272-step concrete staircase leading to the temple cave. The main cave holds a shrine of Lord Subramaniam, a Hindu deity. A cave gallery is located at the foot of the caves featuring clay figurines and wall paintings depicting scenes and figures from Hindu mythology.

When the caves were more open to the public it was a fascinating place to visit. However for safety reasons entrance is restricted now so the location is a little dissapointing and not nearly as special as it used to be. Still worth a visit thought.
it was our first time to go here it was january and we my friend and i london and the philippines was meeting in kuala lumpur and we go to batu caves i reallly wonder that day when most of thepeople hindu and indians parade extensively in the streets and its a mass parade.. then i knew they will go to batu caves to celebrate hindu festivals for 3 days. they packed up and they bring things like bedsheet and umbrella to sleep there.... i clim 3000 i think ladders to step to batu caves.. lots of monkeys, bats, birds and etc. u can see there...
Batu caves experience was the only experience in Kuala Lumpur that was a disappointment.
It was really off putting to see a religious site so commercialised.
The area surrounding the caves was really tacky and so full of unrelated commercial development that I was glad to leave.
Really cheap to get there, only 1 rm from KL Sentral LRT. But along the steps to the caves are wild monkeys and trashes. Not very clean for a temple. A few shops in front of the cave but nothing worth stopping by.
Great exercise taking the stairs all the way to the top without pause - Give it a shot. Push yourself. The stairs lead to an elevated underground cave in which you can worship the buddha or just sightsee - mostly bats and natural land formation.
