OK, took an early morning trip to Batu Caves Temple one Saturday morning.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batu_Caves

This is a photo of the Lord Murugan Statue at the bottom of the staircase. During the early morning, the statue is lighted up and it takes on a golden glow. Taken on Kodak Ultramax 400.
