Batu Caves and Temples

Batu Caves

"Batu caves" is a limestone hill in the north of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia which has a series of caves and cave temples. Caves have been known for a long time by the locals; however they became famous after it was discovered by an American naturalist, William Hornaday in 1878.
Of the various cave temples that comprise the site, the largest and best known is the Temple or Cathedral Cave, so named because it houses several Hindu shrines beneath 100m vaulted ceiling.
There are 272 steps to be climbed by a visitor in order to access to the temple at the summit of the hill.
The site is well known for its numerous macaque monkeys, which visitors feed, sometimes involuntary!
