17/11/16 – Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia

It has been to days since I arrived to the Capital. It is a big metropolis, melting pot of cultures from all Asia with a great western colonial influence as of globalisation. Islam is a great thing around here and a part from the well known Petronas Towers, the Modern National Mosque is a must. Also other religions as Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism and Christians are present. All of them living in harmony.

I started today visit with the Hinduist temples at the Batu Caves. I didn’t visit the fee ones, as they seemed to me a bit of a Disney Land. But the main Cave left me without speech.

To move in the city the public transport is good and cheap.

I took it all the way to the National Mosque and the Muslim Art Museum. Both are modern buildings one beside each other. For the mosque I had to wear one ridiculous robe to hide my legs. Both building are impressive in their magnificence. The Museum host a variety of arts and traditional utils from all the Muslim regions in the world specially, the Eastern Asia. Very educative to understand how Islam get all the way to Indonesia.
