Batu Caves and Lord Murugan

From KL Sentral station, we took the KTM commuter train to the Sentul Station for RM2. Then we opted to take the taxi from there. It was more convenient for us to go to this tourist attraction via taxi since we were travelling by four. And in just a few minutes, we have arrived to Batu Caves.

WOOOOWWW!!!! (Malaking nganga talaga ng wow mga 10 seconds.. wala ng bukas..)

I have been in awe when I saw how huge the statue of Lord Murugan is -- standing in the place of worship in Batu Caves and seems to be guarding the area. To our amazement, we took tons of pictures with just the same views for the first 15 minutes. (OA lang.. hahah)

In order to enter the Batu Caves, one must climb the 272 steps from the ground and this really got me excited. I was so eager to feel what is like inside the cave, how the view is up there and if I can go to a higher level than the statue. Even thinking if there is an entrance to the Lord Murugan statue, you know, like that of the Statue of Liberty in New York where its crown serves as an observation deck.


Anyway, we went on our way and carried our own water para pang-gasolina. But if you want to carry and give something with the 'tiny little creatures' along the way, it would be great too. As we went up, I kept looking back to see the view and Lord Murugan.


The Batu Caves has three caves and this one was the biggest, it is referred to as Cathedral Cave or Temple Cave. There were several Hindu shrines inside with tourists enjoying the ambiance in a cool breeze. And as we look around, we saw this part of the cave with a tiny opening which allowed the light to pass through it.


We looked up and we can see the clear blue skies with green lushes of forest. It really looks relax and comfy in there. As we trip our eyes around, there were numerous 'tiny little creatures' some quite territorial but what struck us is the baby creature crying out for something, and soon his parent went to attend his need. So sweet.


You can also try rock climbing in the caves. As for us, it was the end of our beautiful day. We went back to our hostel and readied ourselves on our way back to Singapore and have the flight going to the Philippines.
