Personal highlights

  1. Batu Caves: limestone hill with a series of caves, temples and statues
  2. Golden Buddha: with 42m the worlds largest statue of Murugan (Hindu)
  3. Caves: formed millions of years ago, this place offered shelter for many
  4. Ramayana Cave: telling the story of Rama through a series of statues
  5. Tourism: having so many visitors, this place totally lacks any charm
