The Batu Caves are just North of the city. Climbing the 272 steps you will find a Hindu temple built right inside a massive cave. The temple is dedicated to the god Murugan. Every year, during the Hindu festival of Thaipusam, believers embark on a pilgrimage from the Sri Mahamariamman temple all the way to the Batu Caves. The site is easily accessible by the KTM Commuter Train from KL Sentral. The journey takes around 20 minutes.
