Batu caves is one of Kuala Lumpur's most famous sites. It is home to home to a Hindu temple, that lie 13 kilometres north of Kuala Lumpur. People began worshipping here when the mother of Lord Murugan, appeared to a Mr Pillai. The Hindu community rallied together to raise funds to make the cave accessible to all (except wheelchairs!). The statute of Lord Murugan, with his famous sword, is a new addition and towers over the courtyard.
