Every year, million of devotees visit the Batu Caves Murugan Temple to perform their vows by carrying milk pots or kavadis during Thaipusam.

Climbing 272 steps to visit the main temple of Murugan is definitely not an easy task even for the fit ones. But how about the physically challenged devotees?

It can be quite frustrating for these devotees with special need, as it can be nearly impossible for them to reach the Batu Cave main temple to get Murugan's blessings, especially during the grand Thaipusam celebration.
