Batu Caves is one of the most renowned caves in Malaysia both as a tourist attraction and also a religious site. Home to the 42.7m tall golden statue of Lord Murugan, Batu Caves is visited by millions of devote Hindus and tourists alike. As a pilgrimage site for Hindus worldwide, the place is usually packed during celebratory festivals and public holidays. Visitors and devotees will have to climb up the famous 272 steps in order to reach the shrine above. The temple recently received a colourful makeover with the 272 steps painted in rainbow colours.

Travellers and visitors can choose to travel by KOMUTER from KL Sentral to Batu Caves. The train route was built in a multi-million expansion project of the KOMUTER lines to make travelling easier for visitors.
