Impressive statue and temple, but at least 200 steps to reach the top, good exercise for people don't used to!!! There are a dress code to enter to the temple, no short dresses or pants.

Batu Cave on its own is a magnificent man made effort to please the Indian Gods. It is definitely worth a visit, as long as you are prepared to go up 272 steps and of course down, and hold it as there are big issues...More

There are no stairs to get to the view from the bottom and depending on how you get there will depend on the distance to the entrance. It's not very far though.

I think about 270? It can be quite slippery in the rain too.
