Batu Caves Temple, Kuala Lumpur

Dear friends and family, shared below are the images from the iconic Batu Caves Temple on the outskirts of the city of Kuala Lumpur, in Malaysia. The name Batu comes from the Batu river that flows past the hill on which the temple is built. The Batu Caves temple is dedicated to Lord Murugan (Lord Kartikeya) whose huge statue stands tall at the foot of the hill.

 With a height of 42.7m, this statue is said to be the world's tallest statue of Lord Murugan, There is a steep flight of steps leading to the sanctum sanctorum deep inside the caves. This cave temple is a must-see if you are visiting Kuala Lumpur. So the next time you are planning a trip to Malaysia, make sure you include this striking temple in your itinerary.
