  • I wasn't sure what to expect but when we got there it is a HUGE rock they have carved tigers into the top and steps up to a couple of small alcoves. You can take pictures there and the kids had fun cl...  more »
  • The cave is a place described as difficult, because it's not actually a cave but simply a large stone with dugout holes in it and baler′efami goals. The stone is located on the beach, and when visiting the beach, his visit is probably worth it. Although we never realized that he designates.

  • Lovely place for a family outing. Serene surroundings, beach closely, well maintained lawns and stunning rock cut sculptures typical of the Pallava Dynasty. Constructed at around the 8th Century AD, this was recently excavated. I wish the management keeps additional boards to let visitors know the reasons why these temples are left half complete. While the Tiger cave (donot worry, there are not any tigers in there, not even cats) seems to be half complete, the adjoining small temple complex seems a little more close to completion.
  • Very interesting Pallava cave works less than 5 kms from Mahabalipuram . Well maintained by ASI. Don't miss the epigraphs / inscriptions and nearby Subramaniya temple about 100 meters from the caves
  • Weekend gateway.there is no tigers here. but have monolithic rock tiger sculptures.Nice place to visit.just 3 km Mahabalipuram. Beach is awesome. But it good in morning and evening. Waves are dangerous. Siva ling monolithic was built by pallavanarasimha.
  • Nice location to take photo. It was maintained clean and green. There is water pond with carved mountain. Standing rock looks nice. Behind that place there is a Beach nice place to sit and enjoy the sea breeze.
  • Good Place to visit all..not much crowded, no entry fee, parking fee- Rs.10/- A nice rock cut temple, sivalingam temple is good to watch.. also u visit beach.. good to visit at morning
