An iconic and popular tourist attraction in Selangor, the Batu Caves are visited by religious pilgrims, cultural enthusiasts and, more recently, rock climbers interested in the more than 160 routes scattered around the side of the 400 million-year-old cave complex.

Taking its name from the Batu River, which flows past the massive limestone hill containing the series of caves and cave temples, the area’s most noteworthy feature is the large golden statue of a Hindu god at the entrance, besides which a steep climb up its steps offers stunning views of the skyline in the city center. Monkeys are said to frolic in the cave complex, and vendors sell bananas to tourists to facilitate their feeding.
