272 Steps to Batu Caves

We woke up at 5:30 AM and had our breakfast inside our room. We had cup noodles and bread, which we bought from Manila to save our budget. It was already 7:00 AM but the sun hasn’t risen yet. It felt like it was still 5:00 AM (in Manila).

From our hotel, we went to Pasar Seni Station and took the Putra Line transit going to Gombak / Terminal Putra Station. It was the last station of the Putra Line and it took us about 15 minutes to get there.

From Gombak Station, we took a taxi going to Batu Caves. It was approximately 10 minutes to get there, for about RM 10.00.

Batu Caves

Batu Caves is a limestone hill which has a series of caves and cave temples. It takes about 272 steps to climb up which will lead to the magnificent and religious Batu Caves. Admission is free.

Batu Caves 2

Expect to be greeted by a lot of monkey at the Batu Caves as they were free roaming around.

Batu Caves 1

The place is sacred for Hindu’s in Malaysia. There was a ceremony or festive going on when we got there. Slippers or shoes are not allowed on some areas.

Batu Caves 3

We’ve decided to go down afterwards and roamed the rest of the place. At the left side, there’s the cave villa with small pond.

There’s an entrance fee so we opted not to enter. We just took a pic of the villa from outside. It’s glad to see a lot of fishes at the pond. You may also feed them. 🙂

Batu Caves 6

At around 9:30 AM, we left the place and took a taxi going to Terminal Putra, Gombak Station. There’s a taxi waiting outside, they may charge you more so haggle but ask for a metered one. The fare will cost RM 10.00 to RM 12.00 going to Gombak Station.

    @Ian, the 272 steps is worth it, kaya lang ang steep. Delikado pag nadapa ka baka hulog na agad.
