Batu Caves. That is all to it and it needs no explanation. I bet there are countless articles telling you the Top 10 spots on where to go and what to do when you are spending time here in Kuala Lumpur. This is not that type of a Top 10 cites to visit. It is something more to that. You see, there are hidden gems or perhaps side track areas where it is not well known besides the gigantic Muruga statue on the temples mouth. Batu caves is one of the must see places in Kuala Lumpur. There are only a handful of places in the world where religious temples are situated in caves. Moreover, it is not far from the city center itself.

Suggestions: 

Climbing up the temple in the South East Asian heat could be grueling. Wear lose fitting pants for as well as bring your sunscreen, and a bottle of water. It is advisable not to eat while you walk, unless you want to be really friendly with the temple monkeys. (…nope they aren’t friendly). They are food stealing, butt grabbing little monsters so please keep away from their faked cuteness.

 

Getting there is easy. You would need to just jump on the KTM railway and head straight to Batu Caves station. The KTM railway is the oldest railway in Malaysia. Taking the KTM is a treat to experience the surroundings of Kuala Lumpur carving through the city lurking behind the paths less seen and taken.

With more great news, the fare for the rail to Batu Caves are reasonable. Instead of paying RM 30- Rm 40 for private tour transport to get you there, you can skip all the shenanigans and buy a ticket which costs RM 2-3 per way. (deepening on where you are of course) . The train frequency to Batu Caves is every 15-30 mins. It takes approximately 25 mins from Kuala Lumpur KTM station to Batu Caves. The Batu caves station stops right beside the temple and it is a short walk to the site.

 

Skip the train and take an Uber instead. Cut the walking and waiting to get there. Lets fastrack the excitement! Click on the image link and get right to it!
