a very interesting one morning trip.

Finally I got myself the chance to visit Batu Caves.

The famous Hindu temples in the caves were built in 1891. That was a century ago.




At the entrance before the hundreds of steps going up to the cave, this is part of the arch that greets us. I find that these three particular statues are interesting.
A warrior-like god, a green deity and another one which has many hands.





The cave interior.





Few more statues. Notice that the carving is quite detailed, you can see the resemblance of the looks of the idols comparable to the ethnicity of northern Indians.





Magnificence. The tallest in the world, facing the city from in front of the cave.





Fierce looking deity that I snapped before saying goodbye.
