    Batu Caves Police Stand

    by DaHongHua Written May 3, 2013
    More police force would be seen during peak season

    Favorite thing: Usually there is less police officers on duty unless during religion festival such as Thaipusam day when Batu caves would be crowded by Hindus religion people from all over Malaysia, and the visitors who come here for the event. The police force would added more manpower to ensure everybodies are safe in the event and after the event.

    Favorite thing: To visit Batu Caves temple, visitor just have to pay the car parking fee if they are by car. If they are by bus, they are free to walk around unless they want to follow a show which they have to pay according to the entrance to the show. To some temple area, the temple committee put up the donation box that invite and welcome donations.

    The Lord Murugan statue.

    Favorite thing: The statue is nearly 43 metres tall. It consists of 250 tonnes of concrete and metall bars, with a layer of 300 litres of gold painting on top.
    It was brought in place by means of a helicopter in January 2006.

    Fondest memory: Perhaps not the fondest memory, but....after we arrived it started raining. My wife, her brother and his wife were going to make some special prayers inside the cave so there was no other choise but climbing the stairs. I had an umbrella, the others had not but when we came down again and got to the car, I was the wettest of all of us, despite the umbrella. It seemed to gather the water instead of protect me!

    Lord Murugan

    by Askla Updated May 26, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Lord Murugan is the God of War in Tamil Hinduism. His weapons are bow and spear.
    He is son of Parvati, one of Shiva, the Destroyer's, wives. You mostly see Lord Murugan together with a peacock, which is his mount.
    As well as most Hindu gods, he is known by a lot of different names, but Lord Murugan is the most common one.
