You will then proceed to the well-known Batu Caves, which has 272 steps to reach the shrine of the Hindu deity Lord Subramaniam and set within an outcrop of lime stone caves.

The main Hindu festivals are celebrated every year at Batu Cave including “Diwali” or Deepavali, that celebrate the victory of light over darkness; and also since 1892, the festival of Thaipusam, one of the biggest celebration for Hinduism community from all over the world. During Thaipusam, the procession of the event actually begins from a Temple (“Maha Mariamman” Temple, the oldest one in Kuala Lumpur built in 1873) located in the city center of Kuala Lumpur, barely a street behind the ever busy China Town.

Batu cave remains the most interesting place outside of India to get a chance to observe and attend to the main celebrations of the Hindu community from India, Australia or Singapore. Hinduism remains a minority religion in Malaysia. An estimated 9% of the total population of Malaysia are ethnic Indians, of whom almost 89% are practicing Hinduism. Indian settlers came to Malaysia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of these came to work as laborers on rubber plantations, while those who were English-educated occupied more professional positions.

This visit is not only a great opportunity to discover more about Hinduism traditions and beliefs, It is also a unique way to learn about the history of Malaysia and understand its multiculturalism.
