Batu Caves is one of the known landmarks in Malaysia.It is a Hindu shrine that has several caves and is dedicated to their Lord Murugan.Here,you can also see the tallest statue of Murugan ( 140 ft )in the world as they say.The place is so beautiful and so are the statues in the temples.I was really amazed seeing how tall the statue of Murugan is.Walking up to the top was really tiring.It was so steep and it has 272 steps.
That time it was so hot since it was summertime and my children were already tired (to think we just started our day )so I was the only one who went up at first.But the second time,since there were lots of monkeys up there,alex want to see them and also to give food as well.We climbed up and just stay at the middle.My children were happy to encounter those monkeys :)
By the way,it's outside Kuala Lumpur so if your coming from the capital(city center ),I suggest you hire a taxi to go there just like we did.It is more convenient than taking bus or train.

Petronas Twin Tower is the famous Landmark in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.It was the tallest building before in the world.I guess,if visiting Malaysia,one should see this iconic landmark.Too bad we didn't go up.We had children with us and my husband didn't want too.But I am still happy that I was able to see it.
Right after we went to Petronas Twin Tower and their shopping mall,we just roamed around the KLCC or the Kuala Lumpur City Centre.By the way,there's a big dancing fountain outside the Suria KLCC (centre commercial).We stayed there for a while coz our children like it a lot.We also went to the park and let our children played a bit.It has several children's playground,fountains,public swimming pool and beautiful garden.
