{kuala lumpur} batu’s ramayana

October 24, 2016

Located just outside of Kuala Lumpur is Batu caves. The first (on the left) is Ramayana Cave. I wasn’t sure exactly what I was getting into as I walked toward this cave, but it turned out to be such an interesting place to visit. Guarding the cave entrance is a 50-foot tall statue of Hanuman and a temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman. Once inside, you can’t miss the enormous statue of the sleeping Kumbhakarna, brother of Ravana, who apparently once slept for 6 months. The cave and its shrines don’t just end there though because you can then climb up and see even more ornate shrines and an interestingly-lit view of those below. What a crazy, kind of scary, climb to the top!
