  • Private Batu Cave, National Mosque & Religious Tour w/ Lunch

    1. Private Batu Cave, National Mosque & Religious Tour w/ Lunch

    Enjoy a half-day tour that highlights the important religious and cultural sites in and around Kuala Lumpur. Your tour will begin at 9:00AM with a hotel pickup and then you drive to the Batu Caves in an air-conditioned vehicle with your driver/guide. The Batu Caves are a popular attraction located in Selangor. The site of a Hindu temple and shrine, the Caves attract thousands of worshippers and tourists, especially during the annual Hindu festival, Thaipusam. There are 3 main caves featuring temples and Hindu shrines. A steep climb up 272 steps rewards you with views of the stunning skyline of Kuala Lumpur. Monkeys frolic around the caves, and it is a popular spot for rock climbing enthusiasts. Paintings and representations of Hindu gods can be seen in the Ramayana Cave. Next, visit the National Mosque, or Masjid Negara. Built between 1963 and 1965, the idea was to commemorate Malaysia’...

    This tour was a great way to see what we wanted to see for our first trip to Kuala Lumpur. We wanted to spend a half day seeing religious sites. The tour was very flexible and accommodating, since we only wanted to go the Caves, the National Mosque, lunch and Central Market. We were traveling with 3 teenagers and 2 grade school kids with 2 families and this was more than enough for the kids. Make sure though you cross reference Hindu and Muslim religious holidays and festivals with your trip. We lucked out and nothing was going on. But the guide told us for one Hindu festival week, the Caves are jammed with worshipers. The tour guide was also very helpful. He did not come with us in the Caves or the Mosque. The Mosque has their own tour guides and the Caves really didn't need one. But I recommend you do research on the caves. Lunch was in a very local Indian restaurant. The food was great but if you or your kids are not very adventurous you might want to pack snacks
