  • These caves are in opposite directions off seashore temple around 1 km. It's all about the art and craft of that era which is amazing and Mistry for today. Caves have sculptures and temples in it. It gives you Positive Vibes and make you think how they did it. So many of that available.
  • The cave reflects a transitional style of architecture in its columns mounted on seated lions and frescoes carved on the walls inside the cave which evolved during the rule of Pallava kings Mahendra Varman I and Rajasimha or Narasimhavarman I known as Mamalla. This style was continued by Mamalla's son Parameshvaravarman I.
