Batu Caves and Thaipusam

Batu Caves and Thaipusam

I brought an Australian colleague to Batu Caves once. We climbed up the 272 steps stairs to the entrance of the cave temple within the limestone hills.

When it was time to descend, I realized it looked dizzily steep with monkeys in between flights of steps.

Many local and international devotees carry kavadi from here during the Thaipusam festival.
