The Monkey God at Batu Caves, Malaysia

Hunaman the Monkey God

I know this is supposed to be a wordless post (for Wordless Wednesday), however I thought you would want to know something about the Monkey God.

Larger than life, this huge statue of Hunaman, the Monkey God seemed a bit of a surprise at the far end of the Batu Caves temple complex, located outside Malaysia’s capital city of Kuala Lumpur.  The Monkey God towers above the entrance to a temple dedicated to his worship.  Batu Caves contain natural beauty (discovered only after climbing the 272 steps to the entrance), Hindu temples and wild baboons, thus making it a wonderful site for families and photographers.  I wrote more about it on the day we visited back in April 2012.

      Phew, I wasn’t sure if I should do the description as it is “wordless” wed, so I am glad it was appreciated.

      I tried to look up his height on-line, but couldn’t find it as he is not the primary statue at Batu Caves. But he is huge!

      LOL – you always make me laugh. Thanks Tara, I will give that some consideration. (not really but thanks for the laugh)

      Batu Caves were pretty interesting, as were other places in Malaysia. You can search the blog for Malaysia to see all my posts.
