Batu Caves

Sharing this photo of Batu Caves, one of Malaysia's most iconic landmarks that has gone viral since the famed 272 steps leading to the cave temple have been given a colorful paint job recently.

Batu Caves is the site of a Hindu temple and shrine.
A colossal statue of the Hindu deity, Lord Murugan, guards the caves. Standing at a height of 140 ft, the statue is the second tallest Hindu deity statue in the world.



The stairs before the paint job

I think it's a job done with flying colours.

What do you think?

Well...I think it might make the climb more interesting, but from a distance, it's sort of blinding.

The colors are so mesmerising! It makes you walk up slightly easily I guess, as your attention was diverted to those popping color steps

Oh those steps look wonderful.. I have been to the Batu Caves.. many many years ago.. I'm going to guess and say about 15 years ago.. don't remember much about them except for the monkey.. but with those beautiful steps I'm sure they will be so much more memorable.
