Overview and Facilities

The Batu Caves railway station was constructed on November 1, 1905 in Malaysia.

However, the station was in a bad condition, as its surroundings was quiet and the village looks deserted.

After the double tracking and electrification of the railway track between Kuala Lumpur and Sentul under the Sixth Malaysia Plan (1990-1995), the line between Sentul and Batu Caves was not part of it.
