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.
