it took me more than 2 hours to get to the batu caves, o haven't been in India before, but seeing many Indians there was so interesting for me.

The cave is pretty cool, and be prepared to climb a couple hundred steps to get up into the cave. I hate to say it, but it's too touristy though. You'll battle to get a good view without people in the background. With people feeding the pigeons, you're obliged to visit this wonder but don't feel the need to book out a half day to do so.

Beautiful charismatic and historical place beside the big skyscrapers of kuala lumpur. A must visit place just 30-45 minutes (depends on the traffic and the mode of transport used) from the centre of the city. Can be accessible by taxi easily which is approximate 40-60 ringets local currency ($20-25) depends where in the city u take the taxi. But the metro network is excellent I must say. Can access the metro direct to Batu Caves from KL Sentral station.
Batu Caves is one of the most visited tourist attraction in Kuala Lumpur, it's been claimed to be 400 million years old which you can feel around you when you are at the place and observe the place inside out. A huge mountain of limestone having network of many deep caves within apart from the temple caves. They have a Dark Cave tour also available.
This place is dedicated to hindu Lord Murugan, which makes it a holy and a religious place as well, so apart from the tourists you will find lots of devotees and pilgrimage people as well.
To reach the main temple of Lord Murugun in the cave you have to climb 242 concrete stairs which is almost on a 45 degree angle. So keep yourself mentally and physically prepared and take some water with you while climbing. There are some small flat stoppages been made on the way as well so the people can breath and rest on the way. But once u are in the cave after the climb you will find it worth, as you will get lost in the beauty and the art of nature. There are some soveniers and refreshments shops at the entrance of the cave while the climb is finish. U can take a breath for a while and continue admiring the place.
Be a bit careful with the monkeys on the way to the climb and inside the temple as well, they might snatch the stuff from the tourists hands. Be careful with the mobiles, cameras and other expensive stuff. Done give any aerated beverage to them as people give it to them but I feel it's not good for them. Recently I don't find many monkeys there in comparison to my last visit 2 years back may be they have been migrated, but still there were some of them.
There are lots of pigeons at this place you can feed them and have very nice pictures with your special photography skills

Getting to the Batu Caves is easy and cheap if you use the Komuter train out of Kuala Lumpur. It will drop you right at the entrance of the Ramayana Cave, which costs 5 ringgit to enter. Well worth the price. The cave is naturally gorgeous and the Hindu art (telling the story of Rama) is colorful and fascinating. From here it's a short walk to the big statue of Lord Murugan and even bigger staircase leading up to Batu's main shrine. The higher you climb, the more monkeys you encounter. Lot of tourists here, but still great fun.

It was interesting for me because of its monkeys.if you don't watch them they steal your stuff...and the temple after a lot of stairs...it worth it.there is a dark cave that ypu can buy a ticket and go inside it but I didn't go inside so I can't say anything about it. And the coconut juice inside the coconut was good.

This was the first place I chose to visit in KL. It's located on the outside of the city about 30 minutes. You can take the train there for about 2 dollars, or a grab a taxi for about 10 dollars or less. The caves are free, theres a steep set of stairs going up to the caves overlooking KL. I ended up here on the start of Indian new years, and the festival taking place here was amazing. Highly suggest seeing this place if you are on a budget because it is free to visit.
