Your tour begins by visiting the Chan See Shu-Yuen Temple, one of the most spectacular clan houses in Malaysia's Chinatown. Serving as both a shrine and community center, this beautifully designed building is one of Malaysia's largest and oldest surviving Buddhist temples.

The Batu Caves are home to an interesting limestone hill around an ornate series of caves and cave temples. The entrance to the shrine is sure to impress, housing a massive gold-colored statue in front of the cave's 272-step stairway. Noted for its beautiful images of deities and murals depicting scenes of the Hindu Scriptures, the Batu Caves is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside of India.
