Tourists will now have even more of a reason to visit the iconic Batu Caves, as the tourist hotspot is now sporting a new, vibrant look!

All 272 steps of the staircase leading to the Temple Cave have recently been repainted with a myriad of colours

In addition to majestic golden statue of Lord Murugan, the main facade of the religious landmark is now a gorgeous spread of colorful hues

We love how the colour gradients panned out! *heart eyes*

Home to the tallest Lord Murugan statue in the world, Batu Caves is one of Malaysia's top tourists hotspots as well as a sacred landmark for Hindu devotees in the country

At a towering height of 42.7 metres (or 140 feet), the golden statue of Lord Murugan was unveiled in 2006 and is also the second tallest statue of a Hindu deity in the world. 

Apart from attracting thousands of tourists from within and outside Malaysia, Batu Caves is also a pilgrimage site receiving Hindu devotees from all over the world during yearly Thaipusam celebrations. 

Well, we know where we're heading to this weekend! ;)
