Simians at Batu caves, Malaysia

In my previous post, I had shared with you all that I felt Batu caves to be strikingly similar to a typical temple town in Tamil Nadu. Well, the comparability doesn’t end with the people and atmosphere, thanks to these lovable rascals (im) patiently waiting to get some food from their distinct cousins. I found them to be less aggressive and uninterested towards humans. I wonder whether it was because of the afternoon heat or are the visitors to Batu caves generous enough to consistently meet the overwhelming demand for food? They usually hang around the giant statue of Lord Hanuman and along the steps towards caves.

Enjoy the pics 🙂

  1. I’ve never been in Batu Caves, but I heard from my friend that monkeys in Batu Caves are less aggressive than in Sangeh (Bali). Since in Sangeh, the monkeys sometimes can steal the camera from your neck and even earrings from the visitors if they don’t aware enough to their presence. While monkeys in Ubud more friendly.

    Nice shot Sree, and please visit Indonesia if you have a chance. Jakarta just 2 hours fly from KL 🙂

      1. Hi Sree, I’m glad to hear that.

        Those are good places for first timer. Ubud is in Bali, and I think it’s the best place to enjoy Bali especially for the cultural experience. It’s one of my favorite place in Bali. Beside that, you can visit many beautiful beaches outside Ubud. While Yogyakarta is the best place to enjoy culture, culinary and many Buddhist or Hinduism temples in Java.

        Do not hesitate to email me in bartzap.bartzap@gmail.com if you need further advice. I hope we can meet up 🙂
