Admire the 42.7 m (140 ft) high statue of Murugan, a Hindu deity, that marks the cave entrance, and head inside to see the attractive interplay of manmade and natural artistry.

  • Absolutely AMAZING !! That's it ...the vibrant colours inside the caves are unbelievable.
  • Interesting spiritual experience. You can climb the stairs and get to the temple at the top where you'll have monks welcoming you for a prayer. Be careful about the monkeys, they are not that nice. There is a museum on the ground floor as well.
