Malaysia's Batu Caves Offer Culture, Adventure And Monkeys

Malaysia's Batu Caves are more than just a series of caverns.

The caves, located north of Kuala Lumpur, are the site of an iconic Hindu temple and shrine. The site is known for its enormous statue of the Hindu god Murugan, the 272 concrete steps that lead to a stunning view, and the many monkeys that call the Batu Caves home.

Visitors who want to take their cave experience to the next level can try one of the rock climbing trails located at the Batu Caves. Check out photos of the caves below!
