Sri Alarmelmangai Thayar Samedha Sri Venketachalapathy Perumal Kovil Masi Thiruvona Theepam at Batu Caves


During every Sravana the temple celebrates the event with Thiruvona Theepa pooja. Huge number of bhakthas offered their prayers and got the blessings of the Divya Dampathis.

How to reach there ?

By train:

Take the KTM train service from any of the interconnect train lines (KL Monorail, LRT) to the Batu Caves KTM train station. The station is situated right at the second entrance of the Batu Caves devasthanam, whereby the first temple you will see upon arrival is the golden gopuram of the Batu Caves Perumal temple.

From Masjid Jamek: Either take a LRT to KL Sentral station and change to the KTM service there, or take a lengthy walk to Kuala Lumpur or Bank Negara KTM stations and follow as above.

By bus:

RapidKL U6 (Medan Pasar-Taman Jasa Utama) crosses by the temple, please alight at the first traffic light in front of the main entrance of Batu Caves before the bus takes the overpass. There are other RapidKL and Metrobus buses that cross by the area as well.


Take the MRR2 and the Batu Caves devasthanam is clearly visible on MRR2 courtesy of our 42m tall gold Lord Murugan statue. If you are coming from Ampang/Gombak, after you can see the Lord Murugan statue, keep to your furthest left and follow the road until the road branches into an overpass and an underpass with a traffic light, your road should lead to the underpass. From the traffic light, take a left (do not take the the other overpass) and immediately make a U-turn whereby you can see the Batu Caves row of flower stalls. From there you can enter via the main gate. The KTM station will be visible on your left at the U-turn.

While coming from Kepong/KL/Jalan Ipoh/Rawang, after the Warta Lama roundabout where you can see the Lord Murugan statue, keep to your left and take the road going down, and take a left to the same u-turn that will bring you to the flower stalls and the main gate.

First timers will benefit from taking the KTM as it leads directly to the temple.
