Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

Batu Caves
Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


Only 13 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur's central business district and just outside the city limits, these famous caverns are easily accessible. The main Temple Cave has a ceiling looming over 100metres overhead, and features ornate Hindu shrines. To reach it one has to climb a steep flight of 272 steps, a feat performed by as many as 100,000 devotes during the annual Thaipusam festival.
