A Hindu temple complex in Malaysia has been given a stunning makeover, with the 272 steps leading up to the Batu Caves painted in a dazzling array of colours.

The complex on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur is both a pilgrimage site and popular with tourists. Its hugely instagrammable new look has been a hit with visitors.

However, local media report the temple’s management committee could be in trouble with the government for allegedly failing to get permission for the paint job – the site is protected under heritage laws.

Enjoy these images, then, in case the decorators have to return.
