Walk-able distance from the station, we reached caves complex, greeted by huge statue of Lord Hanuman. It was amazing to see limestone mountain with caves complex, huge statue of Lord Murugan guarding it. Wow !!!! Amazing sight of tourist feeding monkey's who would come running at the sight of coconut and banana which also forms part of prasad given in the temple.
First it was visit to temple of Swami Venkatachalapathi, none other than our very own Tirupati Balaji. small but beautiful. After offering prayers and capturing in our lens we moved further to small pond at the base of mountain with people feeding monkies and fish in pond. We begin our climb to cave complex, capturing Lord Murugan in our heart and in our lens.
Since it was already afternoon and sun in its prime, climb was dehydrating and tiring. We managed to reach first phase of cave complex in around 30minutes. The cave was grandeur !!!! We were just awestruck with such a magnificent place.
After spending some time in caves, we begin our climb down and our next stop was one restaurant run by third generation tamil who's grandfather started the business since Batu cave complex was opened for public more than 100 years ago. Again it was unlimited full meal of my choice with lunch served in traditional banana leaf.
