Batu Caves, Malaysia 

 These ancient caves have idols dedicated to Lord Murugan. The natural formation of interesting limestone sculptures are breathtaking indeed! 
One has to climb around 280 steps in order to reach the sanctum sanctoram. Every step is worth it:)

Adding to the delight of the excursion is the presence of countless, highly energetic monkeys, who leave you alone unless one is carrying food..  🙂

The Mighty Road

‘The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began.

Now far ahead the Road has gone,

And I must follow, if I can,

pursuing it with eager feet,

Until it joins some larger way

Where many paths and errands meet.

And wither then? I cannot say..’
