In 2006 I climbed the steps to the temple. Hard climb made worse by the sodding monkeys trying to pinch my can of coke.
Two days later I was talking to an Irish lad in the reggae bar who had been up there that day.
He was proud of himself because he had counted the steps and knew how many there were.
He seemed pissed off when I told him they were numbered on the middle section.
Be happy dudes. It's a lot more fun than crying.

Couple of comments re Batu Caves
They were the scene of a massacre of 18 Malays by the Japanese who then used the caves as officers quarters.
During the 'Emergency' before independence ( The fighting against the British was never referred to as a war as that would have caused all insurance policies for the rubber estates etc to be void ! ) the side caves - half way up on the left hand side of the steps at Batu were the main ammunition and supply depots for the ' insurgents '!
These can be visited by prior arrangement and are like an underground 'condo'

Especially in a muslim country.
I recall travelling through Morocco at one time.
Every time I pulled out my cam, although not directly pointed at people, they would still flap their hands and go: Non, non!
Well, at least I got at half decent picture of a camel who didn`t object...
