Tour description provided by Viator

On this tour from Kuala Lumpur, visit Little India, explore spectacular Batu Caves -- one of the most sacred places for Hindu's in Malaysia -- and witness the art of batik silk design and jewelry making at local crafts centers. Your knowledgeable private guide will provide interesting and informative commentary throughout your tour, and hotel pickup and drop-off is included.

After pickup from your Kuala Lumpur hotel, take a short drive through the Brickfields neighborhood, known as Little India. Explore this colorful community before continuing to the highlight of your tour, spectacular Batu Caves.

This massive limestone outcrop features an impressive cavernous interior home to figures of Hindu deities. You may see friendly monkeys hanging around the entrance before making your way up the 272 steps; it may be a feat, but it's well worth it -- it's the surefire way to fully appreciate the temple in all its glory. Your guide will explain why many Hindus consider Batu Caves one of Malaysia's most sacred places.

After your time here, head to Gombak to visit a local arts and crafts center, where you'll see the art of handmade batik silk design. You'll also watch a jewelry-making demonstration. Finally, arrive back in Kuala Lumpur and end your tour with hotel drop-off.
