Introduction

The Batu Caves are a limestone hill with caves and temples. It is also one of the most noted Hindu holy sites outside India. It features the Dark Cave and the Temple Cave. The gorgeous staircase is visible at the entrance to the Batu Caves. Descending into the deep cave, a fork in the path at about the 204th step leads to the Dark Cave. The cave is gloomy and cool and is home to an amazing number of bats, white snakes, and blind snakes, as well as multiple rare unknown animals.
