Batu Caves, is a limestone hill, which has a series of caves and cave temples, located in Gombak district, 13 kilometres (8 miles) north of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It takes its name from the Sungai Batu or Batu River, which flows past the hill. Batu Caves is also the name of the nearby village.
The Batu Caves is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia.
Interior of Batu Caves
The limestone forming Batu Caves is said to be around 400 million years old. Some of the cave entrances were used as shelters by the indigenous Temuan / Besisi people (a tribe of Orang Asli). As early as 1860, Chinese settlers began excavating guano for fertilising their vegetable patches. However, they became famous only after the limestone hills were recorded by colonial authorities including Daly and Syers as well as American Naturalist, William Hornaday in 1878.
Batu Caves was promoted as a place of worship by K. Thamboosamy Pillai, an Indian trader. He was inspired by the ‘vel’-shaped entrance of the main cave and was inspired to dedicate a temple to Lord Muruga within the caves. read more.....
Silver Leaf Monkeys are also known as silvered langurs. There are quite a number of leaf monkey specie in tropical zones around the world and Bukit Melawati (Melawati Hill) is home for this particular species scientifically known as Trachypithecus cristatus of sub-family Cercopithecidae.
In Malay language, the leaf monkeys in general are locally known as "lutung" or "lotong" (not to be mistaken with "lontong" which is a type of delicacy) although it is rather hard to hear such name reference anymore.
These leaf monkeys are docile and adorable creatures, and should not be mistaken with the fearless long-tailed macaques which often seen raiding opened dust bins and scampering kitchen for leftover food. Leaf monkeys, as the name would suggest, are arboreal or tree-dwelling. They feed on young leaves, tree shoots and wild fruits. read more.....
Firefly or Fireflies are also called “Lightning Bugs”. Named as they are nocturnal luminous of the beetle family Lampyridae, consisting of about 1,900 ~ 2000 species that inhabit tropical and temperate regions. The common glow-worms is a member of this family. They shine in the night like fire to attract sexual partners.
Someone figured that the firefly hamlet as the eighth wonderful view. Why the fireflies only occur in the particular rendezvous?
The growth of the firefly must be mingled with the water of the runnels, woods and environment. The river must meet in the intersection of the fresh and salt-water. “Berembang” trees must be something that fancied fireflies a lot, in addition to this factors, the environment must be in its tranquillity besides free from contamination. read more or read more about Firefly and Silver Leaf Monkey Tour
