Gargantuan religious statues, and other sightings, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

After a hearty breakfast, we took the train to the Batu Caves, a series of Hindu shrines and limestone cave temples just outside Kuala Lumpur.

The giant statue above is Lord Murugan. Yes, he is enormous, but behold his even mightier pigeon!

At the top of the endless staircase, you reach the cave, full of Hindu statues and rather animated macaques.

Meanwhile, nearby is Ramayana Cave, depicting stories from Hindu traditions with colorful statues.

Here’s a huge reclining one!

After checking out the caves, we spent most of the day enjoying the city on an open-air tour bus.

After lunch, we browsed the shops at Central Market and Little India as dusk set in.

  1. Well Lord Murugan ate very well. Is that a real pigeon flying by? Some walk up to the caves, they are eerie looking. How did that monkey get that fried chicken leg? What is that statue supposed to be half human half animal? Love the colorful statues. The statue lying down looks like a giant sleeping. Bet you guys are having fun with your friend that great. Enjoy love ya both God bless
