In the Gombak district in Malaysia which is located around 13 km north of Kuala Lumpur are the hindu statue Caves. These caves are best known for being a pilgrimage for Hindus, and symbolizes an honor to Lord Muruga, the Hindu god of war and victory.
 
The caves are thought to be around 400 million years old and are reputed to have been a refuge for the indigenous Temuan people - a Malay tribal people.
In the 1860's Chinese settlers started to excavate the bird guano to use as fertilizer for vegetable crops but The hindu goddess statue caves gained fame due to their limestone hill formation which were recorded by the then colonial authorities.
 
The caves were promoted for a place of worship by an Indian trader who was it is said, inspired by the "vel" shaped entrance way to the main cave.
In 1891 Pillai, who is known for founding the Sri Mahamariamman Temple in Kuala Lumpur, erected a consecrated statue named the murti of Sri Subramania Swamy in the temple cave.
Steps that are made of wood were built in 1920 but have since been replaced by 272 concrete steps. The largest and best known temple at Batu is the hindu god statue temple Cave, also known as the Cathedral Cave. The name comes from the fact that it houses a number of Hindu shrines.
 
Outside hindu statues Batu Caves is the statue of Murugan, the Hindu deity. This is the tallest statue of Murugan in the world, standing at 42.7 meters and cost 24 million rupees  and took 3 years to construct. It was constructed from 1550 cubic meters of concrete.
 
The highest point of the caves stands at almost 100 meters above ground level. At the base of the hill to the main cave there are a further 2 caves - Museum Cave and Art Gallery Cave which are both full of Hindu paintings and statues. Many of the shrines are based upon the victory of Lord Murugan over the demon Soorapadam.
