  • Silent and Calm, attracts many foreigners. Nice place to meditate. You get soda and tender coconuts along the way to the cave, while climbing Arunachala. Supposedly, Virupaksha is half way between the top and bottom of the mountain. You get drinking water once you reach Skandashrama.
  • You can sit inside the cave for silent meditation. Inside the womb of Holyness of Arunachala... So wonderful!
