Full description
Discover the home of Hindu shrines and various religious deities. Listen as your guide explains the Hindu roots of the nation and climb the 272 steps to the golden statue of Lord Murugan. Once at the top, go to Cathedral Cave to see the largest cave in the complex, and hear about the background to this most intricate of Hindu shrines. Visit Thean Hou Temple, a 6-tiered pagoda temple atop Robson Heights. Completed in 1987 and officially opened in 1989, it was built by the Hainanese community of Kuala Lumpur and is dedicated to the goddess Tian Hou. Continue to Chinatown and enjoy dozens of food stalls tended by Chinese, Indian, Malay and Bangladeshi traders. Watch as they serve up local favorites, such as curry noodles, Hokkien mee (a Fujian noodle dish), ikan bakar (barbecued fish) and asam laksa (a sour, fish and tamarind-based soup). Next, see the stunning National Mosque of Malaysia on 13-acres of beautiful gardens and designed it in the late 1950s as a symbol of the newly independent nation.

We booked this 4 hours tour very last minute during our short KL and I it was such a great time investment! Our guide, Kartihk (i hope I spelled the name right!) arrived for the pick up right on time and he’s been very friendly and accommodating throughout the journey. He’s taken us through all the great places included in the description and shared with us information which we wouldn’t have picked up ourselves if we were to go without a guide. 5 Star experience!

The Guide, Nantha, made the trip exceptional. He was jovial, very knowledgeable, very patient. He explained everything in detail and gave ample time to enjoy it. Excellent tour!! The guide gave us TWO hours of his time. I was coping with a foot injury and not once did he rush me, so I felt very comfortable! Great person. The fact that he was " eye candy" did not hurt one bit!

Our guide and local travel service communicated clearly to us about pickup location and time. Our driver told us a lot about the city of Kuala Lumpur and the culture of Malaysia. The Buta Caves were great and we also visited other city highlights. Overall a good experience.
