Believe me, it’s worth the walk up the stairs to see the monkeys, bats, spiders, more monkeys, and the caves. But don’t leave without doing the dark cave tour. It’s spectacular and very educational. Nothing will jump out at you...we’ll, maybe not:)

One of the best attractions of KL, should not be called an attraction as it is a Hindu temple which is built so beautifully that it became a tourist attraction in itself. A huge golden statue of Lord Murugan is what attracts the tourists. But...More
