    a lovely place to visit! the entrance is free, just dress properly; also if you are interested on a tour, you can go to the Dark Cave, there is a 1 hour tour to show some non public caves

    Take the train from KL and don't miss the Dark Caves tour! Get your ticket for the tour on the way up in case there is a long wait.

    Be extra careful with your surrounding! Esp. the notorious monkey, they will snatch any food n drinks! Pls wear modestly for the ladies or rent a scarf before the steps. Always majestic Lord Murugan!

    30 min drive from the city center; not worth visiting if you don't have much time in KL. Dirty, congested, and full of tourists feeding the wild monkeys junk food. :( What a shame.

    The 272 steps leading up to the Main Temple is ruled by gangs of monkeys. Don’t even smile at them, cos seeing your teeth is a form of aggressive manner to them as well.

    Enormous view, short visit (not more than an hour), don't be afraid of the stairs or the monkeys. Take your time going up, enjoy the panorama, on the top / in the cave rest and wonder a bit.

    It's worth a trip if only for the exercise. Bring water and towels because you will sweat buckets. Hide the bottles: the monkeys will grab them from you and run away.
