Batu Caves 60's View

Batu Caves, is a limestone hill that has a series of caves and has a temple, located in Gombak district, 13 kilometres (8 mi) north of Kuala Lumpur. Its name was named after Sungai Batu or Batu River, which flows past the hill. Batu Caves is also the name of a nearby village.

The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside of India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is a focal point of Hindu festival called Thaipusam in Malaysia (Source by: Wikipedia). The interesting part of this postcard, if we notice clearly, we can see two cows in this postcard. The first cow 5 legged belong to Batu Caves temple seen in this picture leading his calf for a stroll, this cow died in 1970's and a statue of this cow is still there for visitor view. This cow considered as a holy cow and special for the temple itself. This postcard is a picture in 60's era Batu Caves. It was purchased in Kuala Lumpur.
