If you’re staying any time in Kuala Lumpur, head out to the north edge of the city and visit the Batu Caves, an important Hindu Shrine. 

The 272 steps to climb to the ‘Cathedral Cave’, with its hundred metre high vault, the largest of the three main caves is worth the effort to appreciate the scale of this natural feature. The Long-tailed macaques mingle with the visitors in the hope of finding food. The two lower caves contain a museum and art gallery.
