Batu Caves

I'm taking a short break of my posts on recent holidays (I am almost finished with my Vietnam pictures and then I'll move on to those from South Africa) to talk about what I've been doing around KL.  A couple of days ago I finally made it out to the Batu Caves, which are only a few minutes drive from our house.  The caves are a massive Hindu shrine built into a natural cave at the top of 272 steps. 

The best part of the site are the hundreds of swarming monkeys.  They are aggressive and slightly scary, but they make for some excellent photo opportunities:
