Murugan Statue

The mountains will sing

To the church as the house of God

Where faith is revered

Standing at 42.7 m (140 ft) high, the world’s tallest statue of Murugan, a Hindu deity, is located outside Batu Caves. The statue, which cost approximately 24 million rupees, is made of 1550 cubic meters of concrete, 250 tonnes of steel bars and 300 liters of gold paint brought in from neighboring Thailand.

Batu caves are located at Selangor, Malaysia

We may have different religious beliefs and practices but one thing is important we all believe in the power of a “higher being”.  In this place people gather together as one community, one nation thanking that higher being for all that we have and all that we are.

  1. A lovely vision to gaze upon. And the rainbow steps – they also caught my eye.

    I wonder why it is we think we need to get to high places when the highest complements (I believe) that can be paid are with the grounded loving heart. 🙂

  2. Indeed, well said.. Religion is the belief in a Higher Source, that Divine Power we are all of us connected to.. It matters not what name we give it… It’s energy resides within all of us..
    Loved these pictures Mich.. what a beautiful experience to be part of ❤
