Spread over near 100 square miles, Kuala Lumpur is the largest city of Malaysia. 8 miles from the northern part of the city is the limestone hill of Batu Caves. The foremost feature of this place is the magnificent 140 feet high statue of Lord Murugan, which is also the world's tallest Murugan statue. Rising above the ground, there are 3 main caves in the area. Cathedral or the temple cave is the biggest cave which requires a climb of 272 steep steps. Several scriptures have been inscribed in the caves and numerous statues of Hindu deities adorn it. Given the religious icons here, Batu caves are considered to be one of the most sacred places for Hindus.
