Batu caves did not disappoint as this was one of many highlights for our visit to KL.
The caves won’t disappoint but be prepared to walk up alot of steep steps. Recommend gong early before the heat kicks in and the crowds emerge...

At first all fun cute monkeys fun to watch. Cave itself not much to see. Lots of construction and dirty. A monkey a ran up my leg and tried biting i shook it off and go out quickly. Not a nice experience wouldn't even bother.

Took a early morning visit to batu. Note: if you arrive around 7 you pretty much have it to your self. Soon gets busy though. Also note that there is a shuttle bus operating from KL Sentral to Sentral rail station from where you jump on the Kommuter train to batu. Bus stop is well signposted from KL Sentral. Was worth visiting, but a lot of scaffolding was up around the site. Didn’t bother with any of the other caves. Take it easy on the climb up. Monkeys were cute.

We took train from Kulampual city to K Sentral then take free bus, another train to Cave. First sight is big statue - it looks amazing. There are some monkeys there, they snatched our Yogurt and fruits so fast, be care when you are there- Should not bring or hold food on hand :).

Inside cave not much special but for first time visitors are worth to visit.

The famous big statue of Batu cave & temple is the main attraction here. So much crowded & noisy place.
