Batu Caves

This complex of limestone caves, home to a number of Hindu shrines, is 13 kilometers (eight miles) outside of Kuala Lumpur. At the base of a stairway leading to the caves is the world’s tallest statue of Murugan, a Hindu god of war; it measures 43 meters (140 feet) and is painted in gold. You'll also find the Museum Cave nearby, packed with Hindu artwork. The largest of the caves is the Temple Cave, at the top of a stairway with 272 steps, and filled with gilded Hindu shrines.
