Top 6 Things To See and Do in Kuala Lampur - Travel Kuala Lampur, Malaysia

There are so many cool things to see and do in Kuala Lumpur. The magnificent Batu Temple, the beautiful Lake Symphony Exhibition at KLCC Park, the city can be seen from many angles and much more.

National Museum of Malaysia

Visiting this museum is a must visit if you are visiting Malaysia and this is a good place to learn about the history of Malaysia. You will see various exhibitions and areas, and you will learn about the colonial eras, the establishment of Malaysia and its independence, how the government functions, including the three major religions of Malay, Chinese and Indian, and individual states.

You will also learn a little about the canning industry, which was once a major export to the country. Ancient fossils, bone fragments, tools and much more are on display. This museum is so amazing. It gave an insight into Malaysia I was looking for.

The National Mosque of Malaysia - Masjid Negara

Masjid Negara AKA The National Mosque of Malaysia is a huge mosque with beautiful gardens. The church was completed in 1965 and has a population of 15,000. The church is free to visit, but you can make a small donation if you wish.

If you are not dressed properly, i.e. shorts, exposed shoulders, etc., you will need to borrow a sarong from their website. If you are not a Muslim, you are not allowed to enter the place of prayer, but you can still see it outside.

Batu Caves

Batu Cave is a well-known limestone cave complex in the north of Malaysia and is a major landmark in the belief of Hindus. The cave is about 400 million years old, and the complex consists of a series of caves and the Cathedral Cave is the largest.

The caves have various Hindu shrines and are an important place for a Hindu festival in Thaipusam, Malaysia. At the entrance to the main caves is a statue of Lord Murugan, a large Hindu statue, one of the tallest in the world at 42.7 meters. Adjacent to the statue is a long staircase leading to caves and temples, where you can see monkeys running as you ascend.

Kuala Lumpur Bird Park

Kuala Lumpur Bird Sanctuary is a large park or aviary. It is full of nets and gives a lot of space for the birds to fly! As you walk around, you will enter different parts containing different bird species.

Some of the birds you see include parrots, hornbills, flamingos, storks and many exotic species. If you find some places in the park interesting, there are tables where you can take pictures with parrots (for a fee). The cool thing about walking is that there will be birds around you, i.e. like the road, that you are in their domain.

The Dark Cave

The Batu Caves are home to the dark cave of the Tropador spider (one of the rarest in the world). This spider has other spiders, snakes, bats and reptiles. They have two visits to the dark cave. 40-50 minute study tour. This is what I did. An adventurous trip where you can see more creatures and take 3-4 hours.

For an adventurous trip, it states that it is worth dressing appropriately as you will get dirty as you crawl. This tour is for weekends only and should be booked in advance. I recommend asking for more information on what you should wear when booking this trip.

Thean Hou Temple

An impressive view of the inside and outside of the Tin Hu Chinese Temple. These decorations are incredibly detailed, and you who like architecture can take a reasonable amount of time to appreciate it. The temple was built in 1989 and commemorated the goddess, Tin Hu.

The temple is quite high on different levels, and from the top, you can see the Kuala Lumpur sky. The interesting thing about this temple is that you can buy something with your name on it in the main prayer hall and it goes into a long candle. I hope this brings you luck! Cool eh! Below you can see the candles. They are tall yellow objects around the room.
