Batu Caves

My most anticipated activity in Kuala Lumpur was to visit the Batu Caves. The Batu Caves are a series of natural caves that house Hindu temples inside. These caves are about a half-hour drive outside of KL and are frequently visited for the purposes of both worship and sightseeing. I had seen a lot of photos of the Batu Caves prior to my visit, but seeing them in real life was even more of a breathtaking experience than I had expected.

A hike of 272 steps is required to reach the Temple cave, the main cave.

My walk up the stairs was very enjoyable because I was accompanied by monkeys! These little guys were very smart and clever, especially when it came to snatching food. It was pretty funny when I saw a monkey steal a kid’s bag of chips. Some kind locals who hiked up the caves brought some bread and snacks to feed the monkeys. Unfortunately I didn’t have any food on me at the time, because I would’ve loved to share as well.

After the Batu Caves I went straight to another important spot in KL – Merdeka Square. This square was where Malaysia reclaimed its independence from Britain. Kuala Lumpur is a city that’s full of history, and that is why I love exploring it so much.
