Tour description provided by Viator

Discover Malaysia's multi-racial and multi-religion influences on this half-day tour to the Batu Caves from Kuala Lumpur. With your fun and knowledgeable guide, explore the Batu Cave Indian temple, a massive limestone outcrop, and its cavernous interior, enjoy a drive along Malaysi'a own Little India (Brickfields) and witness the art of batik design that this region is famous for.

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.
