Batu Caves

Yesterday I took @McGauz to Batu Caves. According to Wikipedia:

The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia.

The cave is cool, but to get there you need to ascend 272 steep steps. McGauz was ecstatic, especially when he reached the top[1. By ecstatic I mean sore-legged and grumpy :P]. You should come and check it out for yourself.

After the climb and descent, we had lunch of some deliciously fresh roti canai, and roti banana. I love watching the guys make roti — it’s the Asian equivalent of tossing a pizza base. I’ll update this post with a video soonish so stay tuned. For now, here are some Batu Caves pics:
