Batu Caves is a very touristy place so if you like to go here come early as the place will be packed during the day. The Batu Caves are a series of caves, about 15 km north of Kuala Lumpur, in Gombak district, Malaysia.

The largest cave, the Temple or Cathedral Cave is 400 meters long and 100 meters high and reached by a staircase with 272 steps high. It is a sacred place. In the cave, the annual Hindu Thaipusam festival celebrated. In 2006 the festival had 1.5 million participants.

There are Java monkeys at the caves.
