Full description
Enjoy a half-day tour that highlights the important religious and cultural sites in and around Kuala Lumpur. Your tour will begin at 9:00AM with a hotel pickup and then you drive to the Batu Caves in an air-conditioned vehicle with your driver/guide. The Batu Caves are a popular attraction located in Selangor. The site of a Hindu temple and shrine, the Caves attract thousands of worshippers and tourists, especially during the annual Hindu festival, Thaipusam. There are 3 main caves featuring temples and Hindu shrines. A steep climb up 272 steps rewards you with views of the stunning skyline of Kuala Lumpur. Monkeys frolic around the caves, and it is a popular spot for rock climbing enthusiasts. Paintings and representations of Hindu gods can be seen in the Ramayana Cave. Next, visit the National Mosque, or Masjid Negara. Built between 1963 and 1965, the idea was to commemorate Malaysia’s independence. The Mosque has a capacity of 15,000 people and is located on 13 acres of green space and beautiful gardens. Its design is bold and modern, and symbolic of the aspirations of the newly independent country. Next you’ll see Thean Hou Temple, one of the oldest and largest temples in South East Asia. Located to the southwest of the city, it is a popular tourist attraction. The 6-tiered Buddhist temple is also known as the Temple of the Goddess of Heaven, who is said to protect fishermen. There is also a shrine to Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. Built by KL’s Hainanese community in 1894, which is set on a hill and offers wonderful views of the city. Enjoy a short stop at a Sikh gurdwara before visiting the Brickfield Church and returning to your hotel. Note that the tour includes not only religious sites but also other attractions such as the National Monument, the Old Railway station, Independence Square, and the Petronas Twin towers.

The tour guide Kalai was friendly and informative. We visited among others, the Batu Caves, National Mosque, Thean Hou temple, China town market. At the end I enjoyed lunch in Little India. I recommend everyone to try out there the mango juice, masala tea and the traditional banana leaf. Very good experience.

The tour is worthwhile for anyone who wants to have a close look at the different religions. Our guide Ramesh picked us up from the hotel and answered all our questions. He explained the different rituals and knew very well about the religions and temples. Ramesh told us again and again secret tips for Kuala Lumpur that are nowhere else to be found. The tour is worthwhile and is absolutely worth the price.

It is useful because the tour with smart choice leads to know the reality of coexistence between three religions Hindu, Buddhist and Muslim. From the temples of tradition to the modern architecture of the mosque, an interesting itinerary, which is completed in the old market with the soft lights of the small artisan shops in front of the shops of the big names.
