Batu Caves

 Batu Caves

I went to Batu Caves (literally Rock Caves). I hae never been and 1 day I decided to to go see. Batu Caves is a Hindu shrine dedicated to the Lord Murugan (the BIG statue). The statue of Lord Murugan was unveiled in 2006 and at 42.7m is the tallest statue of Lord Murugan in the world. On the right, you can see some steps. Well, ‘some’ is an understatement because there are 272 of them.

When I went there, there were hardly any people around. Its hard to imagine that once a year, during the Thaipusam festival, this place will have at least 1 million people and is a place bursting with activity. I have never been but I’m going to make it a point to go next time…..
