A golden statue in all its glory and a mysterious journey to the temple.
Batu Caves Temple is one of the most interesting and interesting places for tourists on our journey to Malaysia. It is 15 km away from Kuala Lumpur. Batu Caves, 43 meters tall “Lord Murugan” is famous for its statue. really magical and incredible.
We filled our pockets with nuts and peanuts because we knew we were going to see the monkeys:) When you go up, you can feed them.
This temple, which hosts millions of people in January and February, is hosting the Thaipusam Festival, which lasts for a few days. The basis of this festival is pain. They show hindus’ faith in the gods and their worship through the pain they inflict on them. They sink skewers, swords, hooks into their bodies and walk on studded boards. It’s a terrible way for people to inflict pain on their own, and that’s the way they show off to the gods. There’s not much to say.
There are several small caves and places of worship in the Temple of Batu Caves. These are accompanied by god figures and decorations. After you finish 272 stairs, you arrive at a huge, light-filtered cave.
And that’s where you meet the most famous monkeys here. As I said in the beginning, don’t forget to fill your pocket with nuts. And don’t forget that they’re monkeys, 🙂 They race to get the nuts you’ve got, and sometimes they jump on your legs.
There’s a lot of monkeys, big and small, some monkeys carrying their babies in their arms, and they’re adorable.
When you arrive at the Temple of Batu Caves, you can stop by the “Dark Cave” cave in the middle as you walk up the stairs. Accompanied by a flashlight, you begin an adventure that lasts 45 minutes. But with the bats, spiders and many other creatures in it, 🙂 We didn’t prefer it. We stopped by the door and left.
If you go to Kuala Lumpur, don’t come back without stopping at the Batu Caves Temple. Many buses, trains or taxis are available. And it’s free.
Enjoy the trip!
