What You Can Expect

Batu Caves and Temple Tour from Kuala Lumpur

Monkey at Batu Cave

After pickup from your Kuala Lumpur hotel, embark on your cultural exploration of Malaysia beginning with a short drive through this region's official Little India in Brickfields. What used to be a simple residential neighborhood just outside of Kuala Lumpur has now been transformed into a colorful community with streets lined with quaint shops and mom-and-pop restaurants.

A short 30 minute drive later, arrive at Batu Caves, a massive limestone outcrop with interiors housing a Hindu shrine lined with different deities. Before climbing up the 272 steps up into the high caverns, marvel at the impressive golden structure of Lord Murugan, standing tall at 140 feet (42.7 m). On the way up, be greeted by mischievous furry little monkeys!

Upon arrival at the top of the steps, enter the Cathedral Cave, the biggest cave of the complex featuring a high ceiling and ornate Hindu shrines. Explore the cave complex with your guide and learn about the history and cultural significance of its various features.

Before returning to your hotel, make a stop at a local Malaysian Batik center and discover how this popular Malaysian fabric is designed and printed.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Our tour was amazing because of our Tour Guide, Robby (not sure on the spelling). He was extremely kind, knowldegable and accomadating. The tour became so much more than just the Batu Caves and the Temple. He explained about the different sections of town and the different historical meanings of neighborhoods, buildings and markets. He was the best tour guide we have had while traveling and most certainly of all the Viator trips we have done. If it wasn't for him I am not sure I would recommend this trip. It is amazing to see the caves but also fairly easy to get to by subway. However, Robby makes me want to take the trip again. I learned more about Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur in our half day tour from him than I could have ever hoped to have learn on my own the entire length of our stay. We can not recommend him enough!
