Batu Caves is located 13 kilometers North in Kuala Lumpur. Batu Caves is a Hindu temple which became popular a couple of years ago when they painted their stairs with so many colors.

The Batu Caves is a Hindu temple outside the city. You have to go there by train or by bus. There is a long flight of stairs that you need to take to reach the temple. You can go there to get some quiet and observe the architecture and the local people visiting. It is only during festivals when the area becomes noisy and populated.

This is one of the tallest buildings in the world. The place is very busy and full of tourists. If you are patient, you can get a decent picture. We recommend you to go late in the afternoon.

You can get pictures at day time and also at night, with the lights. There is a show at 7:30 pm in the fountain with music and lights. We personally like the night scene with Twin Towers because of the show, and the beautiful lights surrounding the area.

THEAN HOU TEMPLE
