The 1,600 paper Pandas created by a French artist Paulo Grangeon jointly with the World Wildlife Fund are on tour around Malaysia now. I have visited one of the pitstop on 30 Dec 2014, 10am-12pm displayed at Batu Caves. The Pandas looked even more awesome with the magnificent Lord Murugan as background. If you had missed out this schedule, you are welcome to view my video and photos.
Batu Cave is a holy temple for Hinduism and thousand of prayers came here every year during Thaipusam festive. I had know this place for long for its greatness, but I never visited this temple before. I was amaze with the awesome statue of the Lord Murugan, a Hindu deity. Initially, we wish to challenge to climb the 272 steps to reach the temple cave, but after seeing the steep flight of stairs, we decided to give up!
