Full description
Discover the home of Hindu shrines and various religious deities. Listen as your guide explains the Hindu roots of the nation and climb the 272 steps to the golden statue of Lord Murugan. Once at the top, go to Cathedral Cave to see the largest cave in the complex, and hear about the background to this most intricate of Hindu shrines. Visit Thean Hou Temple, a 6-tiered pagoda temple atop Robson Heights. Completed in 1987 and officially opened in 1989, it was built by the Hainanese community of Kuala Lumpur and is dedicated to the goddess Tian Hou. Continue to Chinatown and enjoy dozens of food stalls tended by Chinese, Indian, Malay and Bangladeshi traders. Watch as they serve up local favorites, such as curry noodles, Hokkien mee (a Fujian noodle dish), ikan bakar (barbecued fish) and asam laksa (a sour, fish and tamarind-based soup). Next, see the stunning National Mosque of Malaysia on 13-acres of beautiful gardens and designed it in the late 1950s as a symbol of the newly independent nation.

The Guide, Nantha, made the trip exceptional. He was jovial, very knowledgeable, very patient. He explained everything in detail and gave ample time to enjoy it. Excellent tour!! The guide gave us TWO hours of his time. I was coping with a foot injury and not once did he rush me, so I felt very comfortable! Great person. The fact that he was " eye candy" did not hurt one bit!

He talked about the life and history of Malaysia and we wisited several historical tempels and landmarks (tempels, mosque, etc). Really recommend, a good way to see Kuala Lumpur and Batu Caves in a half-day.

Easy way to see the caves and the sites in KL. Would have liked a bit more structured information about the places we were visiting and would have wanted to start with the caves so as to avoid more of the heat and crowds in the middle of the day! The driver was very good and efficient at helping us see a lot of the city in a short period of time and I enjoyed meeting others on the tour.
