When you google Batu Caves, you’ll usually only see one image: A massive flight of stairs next to giant golden Hindu God leading up to what is known as Temple Cave. However, Temple Cave is just one of five Batu Caves. The five Batu Caves are: 1. Ramayana Cave 2. + 3. Cave Villa (two separate caves) 4. Temple Cave 5. Dark Cave The name “Batu” derives from rock – fitting for a massive 2 km wide and 329 m high limestone hill that rises just North of Kuala Lumpur. In the 19th century, Chinese immigrants discovered the caves for the guano that the caves’ bat population produces. They harvested the guano as fertilizer for their fields. In 1890, an Indian trader noted the shape of the entrance of the main cave and decided to build a shrine dedicated to Lord Murugan, the Hindu god of war, inside the cave. Guano and limestone harvesting continued in the various Batu caves for a few more decades before the administration of most of the caves was handed over to Kuala Lumpur’s Sri Mariamman Temple. Since 2011, Dark Cave is managed by Cave Management Group, which explores the unique flora and fauna of the cave while making it – partially – accessible to the public.

FRIM is the first and most venerable research institute in Malaysia focusing on forestry science, to which its spacious grounds and rainforest acreage are dedicated. Sited adjacent to Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve, it is also a Malaysian Natural Heritage Site, as well as on the Tentative List of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Although actually devoted to research, FRIM opened much of its grounds for public access and use, allowing activities as varied as hiking and mountain biking, to birdwatching and camping, to wedding photography. The best way to get to FRIM is by car. Note that it isn’t a particularly easy place to hail a return taxi, even if it is easy to get one to go there from the city centre. So if you don’t have your own car, it might be best to get a taxi to wait, or try and GrabCar it.
