I started this day with ambition – to head to the Batu Caves Hindu Temple. When I planned the trip, I was thinking it was going to be impossible to get there – till I found out that there was a train leading me directly to the temple. Take a train from Bukit Bintang to KL Sentral, then to Batu Caves. Batu Caves is almost at the edge of Kuala Lumpur. There’s a train every half hour, and the journey is half an hour too. Once you’ve reached, the temple is literally meters away from the station. This temple is quite grand and can take your breath away, but beware the monkeys that will attack your bags looking for bananas, or steal your shades. Over the years, this area has developed into quite the food scene – restaurants and souvenir shops line the streets facing the temple – if you’re feeling hungry after your climb. I, however, had plans to head over to the Islamic Arts Museum, before lunch in Masjid India.
