A Pictorial History Of Batu Caves

Batu Caves (Tamil: பத்து மலை) (Chinese: 黑風洞)
is a limestone hill that has a series of caves and cave temples in the Gombak district, 13 kilometres (8 mi) north of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It takes its name from the Sungai Batu or Batu River, which flows past the hill. Batu Caves is also the name of the nearby village.

The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, and is dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia.

The limestone forming Batu Caves is said to be around 400 million years old. Some of the cave entrances were used as shelters by the indigenous Temuan people (a tribe of Orang Asli).

As early as 1860, Chinese settlers began excavating guano for fertilising their vegetable patches. However, they became famous only after the limestone hills were recorded by colonial authorities including Daly and Syers as well as American Naturalist, William Hornaday in 1878.

Batu Caves was promoted as a place of worship by K. Thamboosamy Pillai, an Indian trader. He was inspired by the 'vel'-shaped entrance of the main cave and was inspired to dedicate a temple to Lord Murugan within the caves. In 1890, Pillai, who also founded the Sri Mahamariamman Temple, Kuala Lumpur, installed the murti (consecrated statue) of Sri Murugan Swami in what is today known as the Temple Cave. Since 1892, the Thaipusam festival in the Tamil month of Thai (which falls in late January/early February) has been celebrated there.

Wooden steps up to the Temple Cave were built in 1920 and have since been replaced by 272 concrete steps. Of the various cave temples that comprise the site, the largest and best known is the Temple Cave, so named because it houses several Hindu shrines beneath its high vaulted ceiling.

Rising almost 100 m above the ground, the Batu Caves temple complex consists of three main caves and a few smaller ones. The biggest, referred to as Cathedral Cave or Temple Cave, has a very high ceiling and features ornate Hindu shrines. To reach it, visitors must climb a steep flight of 272 steps.

At the base of the hill are two more cave temples, Art Gallery Cave and Museum Cave, both of which are full of Hindu statues and paintings. This complex was renovated and opened as the Cave Villa in 2008. Many of the shrines relate the story of Lord Murugan's victory over the demon Soorapadam. An audio tour is available to visitors.

The Ramayana Cave is situated to the extreme left as one faces the sheer wall of the hill. On the way to the Ramayana Cave, there is a 50-foot (15 m) tall statue of Hanuman and a temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman, devotee and aide of Lord Rama. The consecration ceremony of the temple was held in November 2001.

The Ramayana Cave depicts the story of Rama in a chronicle manner along the irregular walls of the cave.

A 42.7-metre (140 ft) high statue of Lord Murugan was unveiled in January 2006, having taken 3 years to construct. It is the tallest Lord Murugan statue in the world.

Batu Malai Sri Murugan Temple is managed by the Board of Management of Sri Maha Mariamman Temple Devasthanam, which also manages the Sri Mahamariamman Temple, Kuala Lumpur and the Kortumalai Pillaiyar Temple. It also performs the role of Hindu Religious Consultant to the Government of Malaysia in determining the Hindu yearly calendar.

The Batu Caves serve as the focus of the Hindu community's yearly Thaipusam (Tamil: தைபூசம்) festival. They have become a pilgrimage site not only for Malaysian Hindus, but Hindus worldwide, from countries such as India, Australia and Singapore.

A procession begins in the wee hours of the morning on Thaipusam from the Sri Mahamariamman Temple, Kuala Lumpur leading up to Batu Caves as a religious undertaking to Lord Muruga lasting eight hours. Devotees carry containers containing milk as offering to Lord Murugan either by hand or in huge decorated carriers on their shoulders called 'kavadi'.

The kavadi may be simple wooden arched semi-circular supports holding a carrier foisted with brass or clay pots of milk or huge, heavy ones which may rise up to two metres, built of bowed metal frames which hold long skewers, the sharpened end of which pierce the skin of the bearers torso. The kavadi is decorated with flowers and peacock feathers imported from India. Some kavadi may weigh as much as a hundred kilograms.

After bathing in the nearby Sungai Batu (Rocky River), the devotees make their way to the Temple Cave and climb the flights of stairs to the temple in the cave. Devotees use the wider centre staircase while worshippers and onlookers throng up and down those balustrades on either side.

When the kavadi bearer arrives at the foot of the 272-step stairway leading up to the Temple Cave, the devotee has to make the arduous climb.

Priests attend to the kavadi bearers. Consecrated ash is sprinkled over the hooks and skewers piercing the devotees' flesh before they are removed. No blood is shed during the piercing and removal.

Housing development began since 1970 with housing estates such as Taman Batu Caves, Taman Selayang, Taman Amaniah, Taman Sri Selayang, and Taman Medan Batu Caves.

In the last decade, the surrounding area has changed from a small village to industrial estates and new housing and shops. There is also an elevated flyover over the highway. A new 515-million-ringgit KTM Komuter rail extension from Sentul to Batu Caves began operations in July 2010, serving the rebuilt Batu Caves Komuter station.

On 1 January 2011, during the Thaipusam festival, it was announced that a cable car would be built for the following year's festival. It would cost around 10 million ringgit.

Just Let Go!

If you felt uneasy with someone or they felt with you ..
 just let go..

we don't know what will happen next.. so silence is the better solution to 
solve few problems..

My Full Love Story

Now.. my age is 25...
so many people having question mark with me..
"Devendran.. are u in love with someone?"

My Answer:
" No Buddy.. i won't love anyone "
it doesn't means i don't like to love...

You must know my story first..
i'm from poor family.. 
now i'm in good position..because my siblings and me already grew up
and we are stable...
 but once a time ago...
when my father passed away..
no one look at us..
help or suggest us to grow to become successful 
only my mom became backbone for 3 of us..

i always think about my future at present...
i didn't trust anyone after few problem raised in my life..

some problem.. i just create myself to avoid big problem interrupt in my life..
it's sound crazy and selfish ..
what to do??

do you think if prettiest girl came in your life.. you will be happy???
if someone like Cinderella fall in love with you..
it won't be a good phenomena to ourself..
there is so many guys looking for Cinderella..
few of them.. try to interrupt..
try to impress even though that prettiest lady already fall with others...
few of them.. being cruel and put the man in trouble..

u won't understand.. why i talk about this topic..
it's too complicated..

true or not.. every guys has been loved by girls..
there is few girls loved me..
i test them.. and they fly away.. because there is no true love..
i proposed few..
to test them..
to find answer..
to create problems for good reason..
but i'm not truly in love with anyone before..
few of them knew it too

few people can say.. can share their own theory that Relationship won't effect future life..
it's right actually... but we must know one thing..
everyone is not same minded.. same as thumb print and DNA..

it's very easy to steal women heart..
i teach few guys before..
and it's so effective..

if you want to love someone.. first thing u must do is..
be a gentlemen..

first step:
you go to the person u loved.. keep yourself confident..
just tell her.
" excuse me.. can i talk with you for a while.. sorry if you felt disturbed. it's important to me to talk with you about certain thing.. "

AVOID Talk this in-front of her friends..
Girls always try to hide their personal story with them.. once they get emotional only.. they will share it with her close friend..

second step:
book one table.. then seat on chair.. and start conversation politely..
first.. you tell sorry..
and use this word..
" I don't know how you will feel after end of this conversation.. "

third step:
just talk about your feelings.. but don't expose your love soon..
if can.. if you are really true in love with that person..
your tears must come out.. ( plus point )

fourth step:
at the end of conversation...
" you tell her.. I Love you".. and say.. " i just share my feelings.. i'm really sorry if you are uncomfortable"
don't let her talk.. try to move on from that place...

fifth step:
please make sure that you are not around her.. anywhere.. 
make yourself invisible for 1 or 2 weeks...

six step:
go in-front of her.. but don't talk.. make sure you are a bit far away from her..
key point is.. " your dressing code.. and your appearance is very important ".

seventh step:
try to smile..
and avoid to talk with her friends.. if her friends come talk with you..
then you talk with them politely..
and please don't tell and ask anything about her..
because she told her friends.. i already notice before.. " once girls get emotional or feeling about something new.. they will share it with their friends ".

eight step:
she will come to you and talk.
Devendran's idea always effective...

guys.. i knew how to steal girl's heart.. there is few other step also...
but i didn't use it before with anyone.. only teach others..

i won't do this because i knew my position...
i didn't cry for relationship.. and few hated me.. for that also i'm not bother..
i never ever feel.. this is important in my life at the moment..
but it will be very important for me if someone enter in my life after get marry..

my trust in relationship will born after marriage only..
from there.. the person i marry will feel my  true love..

i belief God..
i trust him..

i trust Shridi Sai Baba
i belief him too..

There is no love story yet in my life.. 
i just wait for God..
