Malaysia-Batu Caves and Genting Highlands

We visited the Hindu temple of Batu Caves.It took many steps to reach the cave but it was worth the climb.Carved into the rock of the caves were illustrations of different Hindu gods.
It was very intersting to learn about some of the similarities as well as the differences that exist between the many beliefs people practice.
When we reached the caves we also encountered wild monkeys which was quite an experience.
In addition to Batu Caves we visited Genting Highlands.Genting Highlands is an integrated resort
consisting of a hotel,casino,and amusement
parks.The unique thing about Genting is the fact that
it was built on top of a hill.In order to reach Genting Highlands
we had to ride in cable cars.
