Climb Batu Caves
One of Kuala Lumpur’s most iconic tourist destinations, Batu Caves is a famous Hindu temple and shrine made up of a limestone hill. Attracting thousands of visitors yearly, it is also a well-known pilgrimage site for the Hindus during Thaipusam as worshippers undertake the 272-step climb while carrying containers of milk by hand or with decorated carriers, known as “kavadi”, as an offering to Lord Murugan. A golden statue of Lord Murugan stands tall at the entrance of Batu Caves and measures at 140 feet high, making it the world’s third tallest statue of a Hindu deity.
Lunch At Batu Caves
If you start to feel hungry after your climb, there are an array of restaurants at the bottom of Batu Cave’s steps that serve delicious Indian-styled dishes at relatively cheap prices. Here you will find many vegetarian options, including Thosai, Vegetarian Banana Leaf Rice, Poori and more!
