Batu Caves as at August 2009
I’ve been living nearby Batu Caves for almost two decades, this place never fails to impress me. I have watched the holy worship place transformed from having ordinary staircases to having numbered staircases and saw bit by bit of the much controversial installation of the very beautiful golden Lord Murugan.
I still remember going to this place to take picture with my dad’s old Yashica and did a write up about the places of interest in Selangor for my Geography paper when I was in form 3.
I made some offerings to Lord Hanuman, the Monkey God and a collective nine gods before I proceed to take some shots of this place. I had a chat with my colleague earlier on, and found out that, we should not even mention the names of the gods as you only go to these collection of 9 gods if you were instructed to, in order to “wash away” your bad luck. Well, I sincerely prayed for peace and safety for my family and friends.
I had quite a full day yesterday, taking photos in the morning, then going to the wedding shop to accompany my sis to select her wedding gown and then, off to the malls to look for a dress for her registration day. I leave you with some shots of the very colorful Batu Caves.
Ah.. my back hurts!
The Belly of Hanuman
Watching the days go by the Window
Friend of the Birds
Offerings for the Gods
One of the many Gods
Not an easy feat
