From a small tin mining village to one of the major cities in South East Asia, Kuala Lumpur has grown to a modern metropolis in just about 150 years. One of the key features of this South Asian city is that it illustrates so much of ethnic diversity in unity. Malays, Chinese, Indians, and British colonials have all contributed to shaping Kuala Lumpur as it is seen today. Home to the world famous Twin Towers, this progressive metropolis is the financial, political, business and cultural capital of Malaysia. The area called as the Golden Triangle in the city is where you will find high end shopping malls, five star hotels and of course the Petronas twin towers.
The Batu Caves are a group of caves of religious importance located just 13km from Kuala Lumpur. It contains one of the most venerated Hindu shrines dedicated to Lord Murugan. Although the caves are said to have been in existence for almost 400 million years, they were publicly discovered in the late 1800s by an American Naturalist called William Hornaday. When you arrive at the caves you will be mesmerized by the 272 steps leading to the caves which seem to rise towards the sky. Batu Caves are the home to some enticing natural fauna and flora. The macaque monkeys who reside around this area can be very demanding of peanuts from the visitors. For the more daring visitor the Batu Caves offer several adventurous rock climbing routes as well.
