Batu Caves

One afternoon our Airbnb host dropped us off at Batu Caves, a Hindu temple just north of the main part of the city. The temple is known for two things, the 272 steps that must be climbed to reach the first cave, and the giant statue of a Hindu god that sits at the base of those steps.

We made our way up the stairs without any problems and wandered around inside the spacious main cave. We also made our way to the open area in the back where the monkeys live and watched them scuffle over food with each other and the occasional tourist.
