About Batu Caves

Day 2: Visit the Batu caves- one of the most important Hindu religious sites outside India which boasts of the tallest statue of Lord Murugan in the world. You can either take an uber (14 RM-cheaper than taxi) or take the metro till the caves. The first cave is more of a religious site with a temple and several statues of Hindi gods and goddesses inside. The dark cave next to it houses several very rare species of flora and fauna and is one of the most studied cave systems in the world. They run a guided tour at frequent intervals for 45 RM and it is totally worth it. The guide speaks perfect English and has good knowledge of the cave history and its ecosystem. The cave formations were very striking and beautiful. At a point in the tour, she asked all of us to switch off our torch lights and then we realised it was pitch black! A very interesting tour for me especially as I learned that the cave is home to a guano (Bat poop) driven system.
