From Kuala Lumpur: Batu Caves Cultural Temple Tour

Depart Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya at your chosen time (09:00 or 14:00) and journey towards Batu Caves, passing through Little India and the Brickfields neighborhood, known for its colorful streets and unique shops. After a 30-minute scenic drive, arrive at the Batu Caves to discover the home of Hindu shrines and various religious deities. Listen as your guide explains the Hindu roots of the nation and climb the 272 steps to the golden statue of Lord Murugan. Once at the top, go to Cathedral Cave to see the largest cave in the complex, and hear about the background to this most intricate of Hindu shrines.  Then, drive to Thean Hou Temple, a 6-tiered pagoda temple atop Robson Heights. Completed in 1987 and officially opened in 1989, it was built by the Hainanese community of Kuala Lumpur and is dedicated to the goddess Tian Hou (The Heavenly Mother). Continue to Chinatown to enter the site of dozens of restaurants and food stalls tended by Chinese, Indian, Malay, and Bangladeshi traders. Watch as they serve up local favorites, such as curry noodles, Hokkien mee (a Fujian noodle dish), ikan bakar (barbecued fish), and asam laksa (a sour, fish and tamarind-based soup). Next, see the stunning National Mosque of Malaysia (Masjid Negara), set in 13 acres of beautiful gardens. Admire the bold approach taken by its architects, who designed it in the late 1950s as a symbol of the aspirations of the newly independent nation. Benefit from a hotel drop-off at the end of the tour services.

Our tour guide was very professional taking us around and giving us information about the places we were visiting. He also took a few pictures of us with our phones for good memories and was very helpful. We visited three temples representing the three major religions of Malaysia, which was a great idea, and a traditional batik cloth factory. Before taking this tour I would suggest visiting the Malaysian national museum to know more about the country as it was very helpful to have this background already.

The guide was very polite. The tour itself allowed me to experience the various cultures of Kuala Lumpur, and the cost was also very reasonable, so I am very satisfied. The staff at the destinations were also very friendly, and I fell in love with Malaysia!

Nantha was I very good Guide with a lot of information about the different cultures and temples, also the stops on the markets was nice to see. He gives enough time to look around and he is open for requests for other stops. I can recommend him
