Petaling Street also know as China Town in Kuala Lumpur. It has a long history where those days Kuala Lumpur citizen travel from far to there and get the best deal from the Peddlers and Shops. Some Malaysian even travel there to trade their goods with them, in hope for them to market for them. Its the central hub for trading and now its transform into a better "Heritage pedestrian shopping mall".
For some important info "Petaling Street is still the best place to shop for counterfeit branded products and for trying out its large selection of local Chinese Cuisine. For buyers, it is often possible to haggle on the price of watches, clothing and all the counterfeit items. The Street is always crowded not only with tourists, but also with locals."

Its a well known place in Malaysia with 272-step stairway leading up to the Temple Cave. Wooden steps up to the Temple Cave were built in 1920 before it was replace with concrete stairway. Recently 2018 they repaint the steps into a colorful stairway.
What so special about Batu Caves rather than its 272 step stairway?
The limestone forming Batu Caves is said to be around 400 million years old. Some of the cave entrances were used as shelters by the indigenous Temuan People (a tribe of Orang Asli). Then in In 1890, Pillai, who also founded the Batu Temple because the entrance of the main cave is shaped of Vel a Devine scepter weild by the Hindu God of War Lord Murugan.
