The Batu Caves, fronted by a statue of Lord Murugan, are a series of caves and cave temples built into a limestone hill located in the Gombak district north of Kuala Lumpur. Originally the caves were a shelter for indigenous folk; later the Japanese dug guano out of the caves. In 1891, they were turned into a Hindu shrine.
The best known temple is Cathedral Cave, there is also an Art Gallery Cave, a Museum Cave, and a Ramayana Cave (devoted to the life of Rama).
