Batu Caves Experience in Malaysia

After the trip in Bali, Indonesia, the next stop was the Garden City of Lights - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
It was just a quick visit. The only place in the itinerary was the Batu Caves where the Murugan statue is situated.

It is to honor lord Murugan who was the Hindu god of war and victory. It is the largest of all Murugan statues in the world standing 140ft high. The Batu Caves of Malaysia are situated in the Gombak district, approximately 13-15 kilometers north of Kuala Lumpur reachable by train.

Again, it was just a quick visit. I wasn't able to see what was upstairs but according to the blogs, there is a temple where one can pray and a museum.
I wish I can go visit the place again someday and be able to see what's upstairs -Sacred Place? And in that time, I wish I have a lot of energy and enough sleep to climb that 272 steps! :P
