  • The mandapa has three shrine cells connected to a central, trapezoidal hall. The floor level of the side shrines are about a foot higher than the central shrine. In the central shrine is a large rock relief of Somaskanda, with Shiva seated in a Sukhasana (cross-legged) yoga posture and Parvati next to him with the infant Skanda. Little bit of climibing is their to get to the temple on top of a hillock, but worth the exercise. • This mandapa is stylistically dated to the period of Pallava King Narasimhavarman - I (630-668 Century), and dedicated to three forms of Siva. • The temple structure is locked but there are carvings on the outer wall that are exquisite. • For the Arts peoples, this a Good place to Sketch your paper. • Parking area is lot and Free. • Good time to visit is 9am to 5pm, try to avoid travelling after 5pm. • Crowd will be more in weekends. • Friendly Area for couples and Lovers. • Overall experience is awesome for us. Selection of Place and where to travel is our Personal, but you can take a Look here.
