Notes: Batu Caves contain one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside of India.  Since 1892, the Thaipusam festival has been celebrated here.  The caves, located near Kuala Lumpur, are comprised of limestone.  Visitors must climb 272 steps to reach the entrance to the caves 100 meters above the ground. The steps were originally made of wood, but have since been replaced with concrete.
