Since we have some time, we continued our fun journey and brought my son to visit Batu Caves for the 1st time. Many people live around Klang Valley but never been to this major tourist attraction which attract 1.5 millions of devotees and tourist during Thaipusam.

A 140 feet tall statue of Hindu deity Lord Murugan claimed to be the tallest standing idol in the world of Hindu diety.
The statue, at the foothill of the temple is made up of 1,550 cubic metres of concrete, 250 tonnes of steel bars and 300 litres of gold paint brought in from Thailand, according to Kuala Lumpur-based media reports today. It has been built at an estimated cost of 666,215 dollars.
