  • We visited the temple in 2012 july very nice the caves and other temples are also good
  • A fantastic and magnificent Lord Murugan (Sri Subramaniar) gold plated statue in the Batu Caves Temple compound. It's a main tourist attraction for people all over the world. Devotees also never forget to admire beauty and majestic look of the Almighty. Can be considered as the tallest Lord Murugan statue in the world.
