A must visit for a traveler who is interested in heritage sites Part of the pallav dynasty marvel. Please carry a bottle of water and some cap as the sun is sharp.

On the way to mahabalipuram and just before it i found this place so calm and full of beauty, the beach close to this cave is also clean and safe.
