Batu Caves

Kuala Lumpur sightseeing continued. This time we have visited Batu Caves in Gombak (13km away from KL). "The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival ofThaipusam in MalaysiaThe limestone forming Batu Caves is said to be around 400 million years old." (wikipedia) My 'Janan' Mari (flatmate) is leaving Malaysia in 4 weeks and therefore wants to visit and see all the places she hasn't been to yet or simply wanted to revisit. Batu Caves was on her list as the last time she visited it there was Thaipusam festival taking place. Huge crowd. This time peaceful and relaxing sightseeing which we all enjoyed (there was Stan with his friends from Krakow as well - Polish rockband lol).272 steps to climb and here we are - amazing caves, beautiful shrine, bunch of monkeys and mysterious old woman. Next we have couple of mosques on the list. I'm glad I can do my sightseeing with Mari :-))) Stay tuned, more relations coming!
