The Batu Caves are known for the limestone rock inside which is more than 400 million years old. We’ll guide you through a comprehensive tour of the Caves’ and the many Hindu shrines around the area, including the wonderful main temple which is over a century old.

Our 3 and a half hour tour include stops at Batu Caves temple, the world-renowned Royal Selangor Pewter factory and they can opt to watch batik craftsmen perform a traditional batik painting demonstration and get to admire the Beryl Chocolate Gallery as well.

Located just 8 miles away from the city of Kuala Lumpur in the Gombak district within the state of Selangor lies Batu Caves which is Malaysia’s most visited Hindu shrine built in honor of Shiva’s son, Lord Murugan and also the venue for the annual Hindu festival known as Thaipusam, held on the full moon between January and February. It’s a festival celebrated by the Tamil community and its devotees named the Kavadi carriers who subject themselves to seemingly excruciating rituals mainly, body piercings). And although the sight is rather unpleasant for first-time visitors, it is a ritual that only devotees go through to attain a trance-like state which prevents them from feeling pain.

For more of an adventure, you can climb the ancient stairs leading to the entrance of the cave system (272 steps in all), to get a magnificent view of Kuala Lumpur when you reach the top. The crowning glory of the Hindu temple is the gigantic statue of Muragan standing atop the entire structure. At 140 feet, this is the second tallest statue devoted to any Hindu deity and it’s the largest statue of a deity in the world.
